Tiesj only wins big. First Strade and now a PostNord stage in Silkeborg
Result-lists says Thijssen. Teams says De Buyst.Benoot should have gone full gas to the end. Now he got no time gap.
Otherwise, clever riding by Benoot to sneak away when no one reacted. Who was the other Lotto rider in the group?
It's nice to see that 1 km climbs is enough to make a race unpredictable. There used to be four stages for the pure sprinters, now it's only last stage.Well… it's kind of becoming a bit a tradition that stage 1 does not end with a mass sprint.
The irony: One of the main reasons for not placing the race in September anymore was the cancellation of a stage in 2017 due to stormy weather - but in fact, September is one of the least windy months in Denmark.Stage 4 is pretty hilly too.
I wish Tour of Denmark was a spring or fall race instead, so the wind got to do it's thing
Belgium is a lot more hilly than Denmark.There need to be more stages races for non-climbers on the WT calender.
Since there is almost a Dane on every WT team, I really fancy ToD becoming a stage race for classics riders. Denmark and Belgium have similar terrain.
Ideally a 6-day race with a slightly shorter time trial (like 10-15 km)..
