Eiya Hashimoto made a triumphant debut at the Track Champions League last Saturday, winning the opening scratch race and securing the first men’s endurance league leader’s jersey of the season.

The 29-year-old Japanese rider was one of a group of seven riders who lapped the field in the scratch race. He stayed calm and collected in the closing laps to finish first of the seven and take the victory.

Hashimoto said he was “very happy” with his win, but he was even more excited about the prospect of racing in the Track Champions League in Japan one day.

“That’s my dream,” he said. “One day I’d like to race the TCL in Japan.”

Hashimoto is also targeting a place in the Japanese team pursuit team at the Paris 2024 Olympics. Japan is currently ranked eighth in the world in that competition, with 10 teams qualifying to compete in Paris.

“I’m very happy to be racing in Saint-Quentin before the Olympics,” Hashimoto said. “My Japanese team-mates are very excited to be racing the team pursuit.”
