Japan Cup 2013

SRM sponsored team, Saxo-Tinkoff, finished the season with a fantastic result in the Japan Cup Road Race where Michael Rogers took matters in to his own hands and soloed his way to victory in heavy rain after 151.3 kilometers of riding. The mountainous course in Utsunomiya Forest was an excellent fit for the powerful Saxo-Tinkoff Aussie and when he first broke clear on the final lap not even a handful of chasing riders were able to catch him. -teamsaxotinkoff.com
