Danny Eaton takes Most Aggressive Rider jersey at Tour of Utah

Mesa’s Danny Eaton (Axeon Cycling Team) received the Most Aggressive Rider Jersey Tuesday at the Tour of Utah after leaving his breakaway group behind as the peloton began to catch up.

Eaton continued alone until Brent Bookwalter (BMC Racing Team) bridged up to him at the end of the final descent. Jure Kocjan (SmartStop Pro Cycling), teammate of Arizona’s Travis McCabe and Eric Marcotte, won the stage.

Last year Eaton finished sixth in Stage 5, ahead of BMC’s Tejay Van Garderen. Eaton is in the running for the Tour of Utah’s Fan Favorite this year. Vote for him here.
