Japanese domestique Fumiyuki Beppu has been racing with Trek-Segafredo (formerly Trek Factory Racing) since the 2014 season. Prior to that he spent his first three years and the subsequent two seasons with Discovery Channel and RadioShack respectively.

To celebrate the Japan Cup one-day race, Trek created this limited edition finish on their top of the line aero frame, the Madone. Beppu’s frameset is one of a limited run of one hundred framesets, exclusively available in Japan.

The predominantly black frame features a grey disruptive pattern design on the inside of the forks, stays and main frame triangle. On the top tube, 'Je sais que je peux' - French for 'I know I can' - sits in white decals, looking deceptively like Japanese calligraphy.

For 2018, Trek-Segafredo have switched from SRM power meters to Shimano’s unit, which works seamlessly with the Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 groupset equipped on Beppu’s machine.

Trek’s component wing Bontrager provides the finishing kit for Beppu’s Madone including the Aeolus 5 wheels, XXX bottle cages, Serrano RXL saddle, Pro Blendr stem and Race Light handlebars.
