Markus Hoelgaard: "Winning today's stage is better than second overall last year"

August 18 th 2019 - 18:43

“I didn’t plan exactly that but that was one of the places I considered if there was an opportunity for attacking there. It was a perfect moment because the group stopped after riding flat out, so I went for it. I felt good all day and I had really good help from my team. When I got a gap, I knew it would be very difficult to catch me. I rode full gas to the finish and luckily I made it. I’ve always liked the Arctic Race of Norway and I’ve always come to this race in a good shape. It was really good to be second overall last year but as a cyclist you always dream of winning so I rate today’s performance even higher.”
