Tough circuits in Sønderborg shake the tree at Tour of Denmark

11 August 2021

Sport director Gennady Mikhaylov:

“We had our sights set on the breakaway today and Sam Brand was the first of our guys to try and then Umberto, but the early attacks weren’t sticking. Two guys managed to slip away and unfortunately we missed that move.”

“The bunch split a few times with the wind, but nothing too dramatic and another small group bridged across ahead of the final circuits and from then on it was pretty frantic.“

“Those closing circuits were tough for us and we felt the ramp up to the finish each time we passed, but Andrea and David worked hard and did their best to finish as near to the front as possible. Tomorrow will be the most challenging stage of the race and we would love to be up the road in the break, but let’s see. If we position ourselves well, it’s possible.”

David Lozano:

“Man it was hard at the end today, the circuits were covered really quickly as the big guys wanted to make sure they had the chance for the uphill sprint. Andrea and I were up there until the last lap and then we slipped back a little.”

“Everyone did their job today and rode for the team. We can hold our heads high and look forward to tomorrow and another chance to show what’s possible with diabetes and try to get up the road and make our jersey visible at the front of a race that means a lot to us.”
