The Japanese Jacky Durand takes lead on his idol's home soil

For the first time ever, a Japanese rider leads the Boucles de la Mayenne one day before the end. Koji Fukushima hasn't been afraid to go for a breakaway, escaping twice in the last two days. It's a nice lesson for the European riders who are maybe too used to calculating their efforts and saving energy for the next day or the next race.

Fukushima is a huge cycling star in Asia, and probably even more in Malaysia than in his own country, especially since he won a stage and wore the yellow jersey for eight days last year in Le Tour de Langkawi. But he's no stranger to France either. He used to ride for ES Aumale and VC Rouen in Normandy. The Japanese trade team he's been in for three years now, named Bridgestone-Anchor then Vang and now Yahoo! Japan under the direction of former pro Akira Asada, also has a long history of taking part in French pro and semi-pro races. Koji even came third in the Trophée des Grimpeurs with the big trade teams last year.

The youngest of the Fukushima brothers received the nickname of "the Japanese Jacky Durand" because of his numerous solo attacks at kilometer zero in Le Tour de Langkawi. "Some years ago at the Tour of Normandy he asked me to form a breakaway with him, but I explained to him that it's harder done than said," the real Jacky Durand recalled. The winner of the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Tours takes care of the guests in the Boucles de la Mayenne in the province where he was born and grew up.

At the start in Le Genest-St-Isle, Durand predicted a stage win by Shinishi Fukushima. It was a clever prediction. The Japanese veteran attacked with two other guys, then he insisted on his own and he was happy to see more riders coming across but when he realized that his younger brother was there as well, he yelled at him: "What are you doing here? You'll make our breakaway fail!"

As Koji didn't want to drop back, Shinishi had no choice but ride flat out for his brother to take the yellow jersey. "It's thanks to Shinishi if I got it", Koji repeated a hundred times after kissing everyone, including the race speaker. Anywhere he goes, Koji is quite the showman.

However, he'll have another hard day at the office before celebrating a win. It's quite common at the Boucles de la Mayenne that changes on GC occur on the last day.

How it unfolded

After 30 kilometers, Kevin Lalouette (CC Nogent), Diego Genovesi (OTC Doors-Lauretana) and Shinishi Fukushima (Yahoo! Japan) quickly got 1:20 lead and it was up to the Regiostorm-Senges of race leader Markus Eichler to take care of the speed of the bunch. Not an easy job riding at 45km/h on very undulating in 29°C weather.

Fukushima was the only one of the three leaders to insist on staying away solo after 80km into the race. A few riders went across to him in two waves: Eduard Vorganov (Omnibike), David Le Lay (Bretagne-Jean Floc'h), Koji Fukushima (Yahoo! Japan), Denis Robin (Agritubel), Emmanuele Bindi (OTC Doors-Lauretana) and David Burgy (SCO Dijon). At km 120, Jonathan Dayus (Team U Nantes-Atlantique) joined the front group while the bunch was cruising more than three minutes behind.

Rather than Regiostorm, it was mostly the French national team and Jartazi leading the peloton, without success though. Koji Fukushima was the only member of the winning breakaway two days in a row, and that gave him the yellow jersey 34 seconds ahead of Eichler. The stage win went to Le Lay who avoided a sprint by going solo with 2 km to go.
