The Race is On (不戦敗? 分断のBBΑチーム, Defaults? A BBA Team Division) is the fourteenth episode of the Beyblade: 2000.
It's the morning of the semi-finals at the Asian Beyblade Tournament and Tyson manages to sleep in. The rest of the team leaves early, but Ray stays behind to make sure Tyson wakes up.
As the tournament gets underway, Max is the first to battle. Meanwhile, Ray and Tyson are caught up in a traffic jam created by a landslide which was caused by Kevin, so they decide to walk. However, the shortest route is over a mountain where Ray sprains his ankle and Tyson is left to carrying him all the way to there.
Meanwhile, back at the tournament, the Bladebreakers have heard about the landslide and are worried about their teammates. And to add insult to injury, if Tyson doesn't show up soon, their team will have to forfeit.
Time is running out for Tyson and Ray, when Kai uncharacteristically steps up to the plate to stall for time until Tyson shows up. The Bladebreakers win the match, Max congratulates the Blade Hunters for putting up a good fight and gives them his old blade.
The team is ready for the semi-finals, except Tyson who is still sleeping. Ray stays behind when the rest of the team goes to the BeyStadium to wake Tyson up. They get there and it's time for their match, so Max goes to battle Chucky and his homemade Blade. He stalls out as long as he can, to give Tyson and Ray a chance to get there in time.
Tyson and Ray are on their way, when a rock slide makes it impossible for their vehicle to go on. They decide to climb up the mountain. Ray twists his ankle tough and Tyson has to carry him to the stadium.
Meanwhile, Max is still stalling for time, and Chucky and his team think he is toying with them. When Max realizes that they think he is blading unfairly, he finishes up quickly. Kai goes to battle in the 2nd round since Ray and Tyson still haven't showed up.
He finishes the match quickly, though. It seems like they have to forfeit, and any one forfeit would cause the Bladebreakers to be disqualified, but at the last minute Tyson and Ray get there. Kevin, from the White Tigers, admits to Mariah that he caused the rock slide. Tyson takes on the last of the Blade Hunter and wins another victory and is qualified to go to the finals.
