After falling and landing in last place, Onoda must find a way to pass 100 men. Teshima lets Onoda know he thinks it's possible if Onoda will just focus, and the support team relaunches Onoda into action. The task proves to be difficult with the small mountain roads and the pack in front of him, but with a little help from his favorite anime song, Onoda finds his spirits lifted. Onoda counts each individual as he begins passing them. At the front of the race, Arakita swears that Onoda will never catch them before the end of the day due to the small road and the pack blocking the way. As Onoda reaches the final man to pass, he runs into Midosuji, who shows a secret he has kept from everyone that would allow him to win all legs of the race if he truly wanted to try. Eventually Onoda passes Midosuji and zooms up to meet his teammates. Onoda takes over as the head of his teams drifting pack while Makishima starts his breakaway with his spider climbing.
