Daitsubu Takeshi is a cyclist from Nara Sanri Academy Bicycle Club who claims to be "Nara's fastest sprinter."
41st Inter High
He is seem along with Shibata Yasuyuki and many other unknown sprinters from other schools trying to win the Sprinter checkpoint. However, after being passed Naruko, Tadokoro and Izumida, he returned to the pack along with many other sprinters.
Day 1 Goal
All is known from Daitsubu during the first stage is that he finished 79th on the first goal line of the race.
Daitsubu, along with many other racers, was part of the pack led by Machimiya with the objective of reach the race's frontline.
Post Inter High
Daitsubu went to Osaka and challenged Naruko Shoukichi on his home track using his track bike. He had the advantage during a while, but was later passed by his opponent and consequently lost the race.
- While he was shown riding a Ridley bicycle during 41st Inter High and Kumamoto Race, during his challenge against Naruko on Osaka he was shown with a Look one. There's a possibility that he could have changed his bike on the same way as Onoda did during the story or his Ridley belonged to his club and he had to use his own after graduating.
