Eric wins KOM jersey at the Japan Cup
The Japan Cup is the biggest single-day bicycle race in Asia and was held in Utsunomiya with 14 laps of a 10.3km circuit. Racing for Attaque Team Gusto, Eric managed to get into the breakaway and picked up maximum KOM points by riding solo off the front for three laps. Eric said the race was incredibly hard but he was buoyed on by cheers from the 75,000 strong crowd. The race was eventually won by Bauke Mollema from Trek Factory Racing.
