1 Miyataka Shimizu (Jpn) Nippo Corporation - Meitan Honpo Co LTD - Asada 16.49.11
2 Yukiya Arashiro (Jpn) Nippo Corporation - Meitan Honpo Co LTD - Asada 0.24

3 Victor Manuel Gomes Colinas (Spa) Viña Magna - Cropu 1.00
4 Bauke Mollema (Ned) Rabobank Continental 1.04

Yukiya is the current Japan National Champion and has been having excellent results in Europe this year.
The 2 Fukushima brothers have taken on a lot of Japan's young talent and are letting them ride to their ability rather than let them do all the work for their own glory.

They are gradually climbing the ranks in Europe and hopefully they can get a few of their riders in some of the bigger races before too long.

Nippon cha cha cha, Nippon cha cha cha :eek:uch:
