2014 Japan Cup (HC) Results

Japan Cup podium history | 2013 edition | 2015 edition

Sunday, October 19, 2014. Utsunomiya - Utsunomiya, Japan.

10 laps of 14.1 km + 10.3 km= 151.3 km total distance

The Race: More than 80,000 spectators lined the course at Utsunomiya today. In a tight photo-finish (I guess they all are), Australian Nathan Hass won the Japan Cup for a second time. Haas also won the race in 2011.

Four riders were away for much of the day, but they were caught during the final lap. A strong group counter-attacked, making for a 9-man uphill sprint, initiated by Grega Bole. Haas, Hagen and Bole threw their bikes across the line, but Haas prevailed.
