Fredrik Dversenes: "I love salmon"

“I was very motivated from the start to go and get in the breakaway in order to take the salmon jersey. There were three KOM sprints. We all decided to go flat out for the first sprint and the guy who’d get three points in the first KOM sprint would pass first in the other two. It went like that. Then I was able to stay up there with the guys. It’s a big satisfaction for me to reach my goal today. It will not be easy at all to retain the jersey. Tomorrow the first climb is very soon after the start and the finish is a bit too hard for me. Salmon is good, I’m a Norwegian and I’d love to bring home 500 kilos of salmon [the final prize for the King of the Mountains].”
