The road race season is virtually at and end with just a few events scattered outside of Europe remaining, and what better time to ask riders from the professional peloton for their highlights of the year.
At the recent Japan Cup, won by Australia's Nathan Haas (Garmin-Sharp), Cyclingnews asked a number of riders to pick their best moments of 2014. For Team Sky's Bernhard Eisel – who struggled at first - it was the Tour de France stage made famous by the cobbles and the rain, while Steele von Hoff enjoyed the entire second half of the season.
Rory Sutherland selected his start and end to the year, having begun the campaign at the Tour Down Under, while Philip Gaimon picked out the North American block of racing at the Tour of Utah and US Pro Challenge.
