Peron hangs tough on stage one in Denmark

“It ended up being a very nervous stage today. At the start it unfolded as we expected, the first attacks formed the breakaway and the bunch stayed pretty controlled until we hit the final circuits in Esbjerg…then it all exploded.”

“The break was caught and the sprinters team really started to drive the pace and unfortunately a few crashes occurred and we got caught up in them. Andrea managed to avoid the worst of it and hold his position at the front. He finished well to be fair and considering he’s recovering from some sickness we’re happy with how the day went.”

“I felt pretty good through the day and the guys did a great job of keeping up front and positioned well. Robbe has made a good start with us and despite crashing a couple of times he got back up and tried to help out again. Which is a great sign.”

“The final circuits were really fast, as we anticipated, but the guy in front of me lost all he wheel and caused a bit of a split so I couldn’t finish any higher. The sensations are coming back slowly after being sick for a while and I’m happy to feel like I can put some power down again.”
