Ben Hermans: "It's nice to add the Artic Race to my palmarès"

“It was really under control until we reached the local laps. It was all about positioning before the last climb but the boys of my team kept me in the front. They also did a perfect job in controlling the race before with not pulling too hard and not closing the gap. We were lucky that three guys from the breakaway were still at the front. I only had to match Lafay and...

Victor Lafay: "It's been an incredible trip"

“This stage was hard! With nine riders in the breakaway, it’s been fast all day. We had Thomas Champion in the leading group, so we were fine. My earpiece broke down during the race, so I wasn’t sure if there were still escapees or not. I just knew I had to go flat out in the last uphill. I rode away with two other riders before the first climb in the last lap...

Fredrik Dversnes: "I hope this salmon jersey will boost my career"

“It’s a big thing for me to win the climbers’ jersey in the Arctic Race of Norway. It’s my first time up here. It’s good for our team to get such a result. We showed ourselves how good we can ride together. 500 kilos of salmon [the prize for the KOM], we have to split it! It’s too much for myself. It’s never bad to win a jersey and I...

Alexander Kristoff: "It's been a positive experience for me"

“I think it was a nice race. With the great weather we’ve had, of course it was beautiful. The stages were hard. There was one sprint stage [stage 2], I wish I had won it but it was very close. Today I was hoping for a bit more but it was really harder than last time I won here. I think it was actually the hardest stage of the whole race. Overall, for me it was a...

Philipp Walsleben: "Maybe I'll reconsider quitting pro cycling after this"

“Of course I’m very satisfied. It was really hard. We made it a hard race today. When I’m in such a group, from the beginning I immediately start thinking of the stage victory. But in the end it was a lot of suffering. I was a bit surprised that I was the strongest of the front group but it made me happy. It was hard to deal with Niki Terpstra because he’s...
