Eaton 10th in world for U23 time trial

Mesa’s Danny Eaton (Axeon Cycling Team) finished 10th overall and as the top American Monday at the UCI Road World Championship U23 time trial.

The 22-year-old finished with a time of 37:54.89, just behind the top European riders from Denmark, Germany and Norway. Mads Wurtz Schmidt from Denmark won gold with a top time of 37:10.96.

It’s been a successful year for Eaton – he also donned the Most Aggressive Rider Jersey in this year’s Tour of Utah, and he won the 2015 USA Cycling U23 Time Trial Championships.

A year earlier, he beat Tejay Van Garderen (BMC) for a sixth-place finish in the 2014 USA Pro Challenge.
