Fumiyuki
Beppu

Fumy Beppu brings years of experience to the team - he has ridden on WorldTour teams since 2005 – and is the most celebrated rider in Japan’s history. As an Under-23, he made a bold leap to France, a move he knew was necessary if he wanted to make it in a European sport, and joined the top-level French amateur club where he was finally recognized for his strong results, including a 14th place in the U23 Paris-Roubaix. In 2015, Fumy stole the hearts in Japan by winning the Japan Cup criterium, a feat he repeated in 2016, a big home win for a selfless teammate who rarely gets a chance for himself.
