* GuileHero: Especially noticeable during the training camp challenge and [[spoiler: the second Inter-High preliminaries]], when he easily confuses his enemies with smooth talking and some flashy gestures. He notes that a race is as much a mental battle as a physical one

** He also does this again [[spoiler: when he's forced to drop out of his final Inter High due to a knee injury.]]



* ManipulativeBastard: A rare heroic example, Kinjou is surprisingly good at knowing exactly how to motivate his team to reach their full potential, such as egging on Imaizumi during a sprint and telling Naruko to make sure to act "flashy" [[spoiler: right before he dropped out.]] Notably, it's heavily hinted that he ''wanted'' Makishima to tell Onoda about his secretly altered bike during the TrainingCampFromHell in order for them to become closer.




to:

* TheStoic: Is notably very withdrawn and serious to the point of being intimidating at the beginning of the series, in contrast to the moody and creepy Makishima and loud and brash Tadokoro.



** Is sometimes associated with goats as well.



* CreepyGood

to:

* CreepyGoodCovertPervert: His interests apparently include reading ''gravure'' (which is essentially cheesecake).
* CreepyGood: He is initially depicted as creepy and intimidating but turns out to be one of the nicest characters in the series.



* TeamMom: Towards the 1st years, especially Onoda.

to:

* TeamMom: Towards Tries to fulfill this role with the 1st and 2nd years, but isn't always the best at it. He fits this role especially with Onoda.



* TeamDad: Towards the 1st and 2nd years.

to:

* SignatureLaugh: Written as "ga ha ha."
* TeamDad: Towards In contrast to the stoic Kinjou and the awkward Makishima, he fufills this role for the 1st and 2nd years.



* NoNameGiven: Manami only ever refers to her as "iinchou" (confusing some English speaking fans who don't know that's the word for ClassRepresentative). Readers didn't even learn her surname until a flashback According to WordOfGod, her name may be revealed during the second Inter-High.

* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Since they were young. She's actually the one who introduced him to cycling in an attempt to help his poor health, and later helped tutor him so he could get into the prestigious Hakone Academy. She's also constantly trying to get him to do his schoolwork and stop skipping on sleeping through class, to little success.



* CuckooLandersMinder

to:

* CuckooLandersMinderFirstNameBasis: As they've known each other since they were very young, Miyahara actually refers to Manami by his given name, making the fact he only ever calls her by her title somewhat odd.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tsundere}}: Despite all her scolding, she clearly cares deeply for Manami.

Added DiffLines:

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: A downplayed example, but forms this with Miki.
--> ''Miki:'' A woman's touch is vital in the resupply point~!
--> ''Aya:'' I'm not sure I'll be good with that...



** Another platonic example (once more, [[{[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship}} or not?)]] with Miki. Despite frequently criticizing Miki's tendency to become scarily excited when the topic of bikes comes up, the two are clearly good friends, and Aya worries about her good nature being taken advantage of by boys.

* OddFriendship:
** It may seem odd that the reserved and aloof Imaizumi and hyper and overtly-friendly Miki are friends, but they've known each other since elementary school. Despite clearly being annoyed by Miki's teasing, he is still close to her.
** Imiazumi's odd friendship with Onoda could technically be considered the catalyst of the series.



* BigBrotherMentor: Is this toward the second years.

to:

* BigBrotherMentor: Is this toward the second years.years Aoyagi and Teshima.
** He also seems to have a soft sport towards Onoda. He's the first of the team to see his potential, encouraging him to try and beat Imaizumi when he has to drop out of the first year race and giving him extra food during the training camp so he doesn't drop out. [[spoiler: In his flashback to when he attempts to resign from the club, it's revealed that these are things that happened to him during his first year, hinting that he sees himself in Onoda.]]



* HotBlooded

to:

* HotBloodedHiddenDepths: He has a love of history, specifically Japanese history. He makes a reference to Oda Nobunaga when [[spoiler: signing a message on the Interhigh ribbon.]]
* HotBlooded: In a series full of hot blooded guys.

* PapaBear: To the 2nd years.

to:

* OddFriendship: He and Makishima seem to have become friends after meeting in the club, despite Despite being complete opposites.
opposites, he and Makishima are very good friends.
** He's close to Kinjou as well, despite him being much more reserved and taciturn.
* PapaBear: To the 2nd years. Doesn't help that he's frequently associated with bears.



The club manager of Sohoku's bicycle club.

to:

The club manager of Sohoku's bicycle club.
club. She also works part-time in her family's cycling store (the same store that sponsors Sohoku's team). Childhood friend of Imaizumi and younger sister of Tooji.



* AwesomenessbyAnalysis: A minor case but, like her older brother, Miki has a keen sense of observation. This comes into play in Year 2, where she notices [[spoiler: Imaizumi]] and later [[spoiler: Aoyagi's]] injuries before they tell anyone



* ChildhoodFriends: With Imaizumi.

to:

* CharacterTics: Has a habit of pressing her hands together in front of her when she talks.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Imaizumi. They initially weren't very big fans of one another.
* CloudCuckooLander: Aya claims she always "has her head in the clouds" unless the topic turns to bicycles.



* TheGadfly: Has a habit of teasing Imaizumi and Aya. She even teases Makishima after he finally starts cheering for Onoda during the first year race.



* MotorMouth: According to Aya.

to:

* MotorMouth: According Whenever she gets the chance to Aya.geek out about bikes.



* {{Otaku}}: A self-proclaimed cycling otaku.

to:

** Has now somewhat regained this role during the Second Interhigh now that Aya (who has next to no knowledge of cycling) has joined the support team.
* NonActionGirl: Despite loving bicycles and bikes so much, she has not been seen on a bicycle yet, so far.
* OddFriendship: Two.
** She's been friends with Imaziumi for years, despite their relationship having a shaky start. Miki's overly friendly nature and tendency to push Imaizumi's buttons visibly annoys him a little, but they're still fairly close.
** The grumpy and abrasive Aya frequently and loudly complains about Miki's "alien bike talk" whenever she gets on a roll, but she clearly cares about her a lot. In fact, if second year is anything to go by, Aya might be slowly becoming interested in cycling.
* {{Otaku}}: A self-proclaimed cycling otaku.otaku, she talks about bikes the same way Onoda talks about anime, down to the exact same sparkling eyes.
* PluckyGirl: Kind and helpful, but can be assertive when she wants to be.


Added DiffLines:

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Seems to share this trait with Miki, he's able to figure out who the club "vandal" is by the distinct slant of their writing.


Added DiffLines:


!!'''Aya Tachibana'''

Miki's friend and a member of Sohoku's tennis club. [[spoiler: Tags along and helps the support team during Onoda's second Interhigh.]]

* GrumpyBear: Almost always has an unimpressed and sullen look on her face and rather unfriendly to Onoda in the first part of the series. She seems to have relaxed some by her second year.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Or failed hero, perhaps. Her own team loses their Interhigh qualifiers in second year [[spoiler: hence why she tags along with Sohoku's cycling team to theirs.]]
* OddFriendship: Loudly voices her dislike of otaku and disinterest in cycling, is close friends with the "cycling otaku" Miki.
* {{Tsundere}}: A more platonic example ([[{{Shiptease}} or not?]]) with Onoda, once she learns about his feats in the cycling team, she tries to be friendlier towards him (with somewhat awkward results).
** Another platonic example (once more, [[{[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship}} or not?)]] with Miki. Despite frequently criticizing Miki's tendency to become scarily excited when the topic of bikes comes up, the two are clearly good friends, and Aya worries about her good nature being taken advantage of by boys.
* TheWatson: Occasionally plays this role with Miki, [[spoiler: especially during the Second Inter-High, being the only member of the support team with no experience in road racing.]]

!!'''Higashido'''

A former teammate of Teshima's from middle school, now is a member of Sohoku's volleyball team.

* ChildhoodFriends: With Teshima [[spoiler: and Ashikiba.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Or failed hero, perhaps. His own team loses their Inter-High Qualifiers. He causally mentions (with a somewhat solemn air) that his this means his high school volleyball career is essentially over, before hastily changing the subject back to Teshima.
* NiceGuy: Friendly and supportive of Teshima, even coming all the way to cheer him on during his Interhigh.
