About Eri: I’m Eri Yonamine from Japan. I met cycling as sport when I was 20 years old in university. Before start cycling, I had played tennis in the club for 7 years from junior high school. My first (only women’s) road race was National Championship in 2012. I got silver medal surprisingly myself and then my passion for cycling got started. 4years later, I could get my chance to come into World Tour peloton in 2016 just after Rio Olympic.. Of course I love to race as professional but also I love just riding any other kinds of bike. I do MTB also CX sometimes do race but just for fun not competitive.
