Espressocycling.cc was at the road side at today’s big event: The mens cycling elite competing for the highly prestigious Dannebrog jersey.
The Olympic gold medalist Lasse Norman Hansen and the other riders in the breakaway is extending their lead with 5 laps remaining on the course.
The broadcast motorcycle gets good shots of the bravely fighting breakaway. Among them last year’s winner Sebastian Lander from BMC Racing Team, who is not afraid to push in front.
Several riders, especially from the smaller team, tries in vain to pull away, but a high-speed peloton won’t let them out of sight.
Saxo Tinkoff are well represented in the race. Mads Christensen and Team Designa Kitchen’s Jonas Nordkroggaard are trying to get away from the peloton.
The penultimate lap and the positioning battle in front starts to get tough. A Team Three-For rider is taking the lead.
