Racers compete during ISU-1 Hanyu Grand Prix, June 9. Propelling the chair backwards was the universal tactic employed by the racers, who were at least spared the added constriction of business dress with competitors choosing their own outfits.

The three team members rotated during the race Le Mans-style to try and stay fresh but in the dense summer humidity, it proved a tough battle for even the most experienced racers. REUTERS/Issei Kato

A racer stretches during ISU-1 Hanyu Grand Prix, June 9. The series, which started with a race in Kyoto in 2009, was the brainchild of Tsuyoshi Tahara and will feature at 10 different grand prix events across Japan this year.

"The origin of this race came to my head when I saw a tricycle endurance race," Tahara explained. Tahara's idea has proved surprisingly popular, with 55 teams entering the Hanyu Grand Prix alone and hailing from as far away as Wakayama, 373 miles to the south. REUTERS/Issei Kato
