August Jensen: “I didn't expect to win here"

interview12.08.2017Stage 3- Lyngseidet (Lyngen Alps) / Finnvikdalen (Tromsø)

Stage 3 winner August Jensen declared: “I didn't expect to win here. This is my home race. To take a stage win is amazing. I'm the first rider from the north to do it. It's absolutely wonderful. I didn't have a tactic for winning, but I followed the best up the hill and I sprinted the fastest I could. I knew Dylan Teuns was one of the strongest guys. I made a mistake not following him on the first stage. I was not going to repeat the same mistake today. You have no idea how happy I am to take the win ahead of him. I've had a great season so far but I only had some small victories before this one. Here the level is very high!”


  • August Jensen makes northern Norway proud

    August Jensen (Team Coop), the only rider from northern Norway, claimed the queen stage of the fifth Arctic Race of Norway at the unprecedented uphill finish of Finnvikdalen, a marvelous setting in the middle of lakes and mountains just a throw stone away from the city of Tromsø where the race will come to an end this Sunday. After beating race leader Dylan Teuns of BMC by a very small margin, Jensen is only three seconds adrift in the overall ranking with one stage to go!
