Organisers of the Japan Cup presented teams on stage for what is set as one of the final UCI events of the season. Those presented on stage were Trek-Segafredo's defending champion Bauke Mollema and soon-to-be-retired Fabian Cancellara.
The weekend will start with a criterium on Saturday, October 22 and finish with the UCI 1.HC road race on Sunday, October 23. Last year, Mollema won the road race after he outpaced Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) and Yukiya Arashiro (Japan National Team) at the end of a selective 144.2-kilometre route, which was based on the 1990 World Championships course.
