Arctic Race of Norway: Hoelgaard back to back… two years apart

Four riders in the lead

111 riders took the start of stage 1 in the 8th Arctic Race of Norway in Tromsø. Gleb Brussenskiy (Astana- Premier Tech), Alexis Gougeard (AG2R-Citroën) and Alex Colman (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise) were the first riders to make a move. As the peloton let them go, they enjoyed an advantage of 4’10’’ after 15km of racing....

Gleb Brussenskiy: "This is my first distinctive jersey, it's a little victory!"

“I’m a neo-pro so this jersey of King of the Mountain is my little victory. I’m a young rider and this is the first time I get a distinctive jersey in a pro race. I’m glad I have it. I thank my team and my guys so much for their support. I will do my best to save this jersey in the next few days.”

Samuele Battistella: "I hope to make the final podium"

“After a break, I came here to see how my legs are ahead of the final part of the season. For sure, the white jersey gives a good morale, now I have to retain it till the end. I felt pretty good up the hill. I attacked in the second last lap. I took a bit of an advantage but I got caught just before the last climb. However, I fought for staying in the main group. My ambition...

Alexis Gougeard: "I'll do it again"

“All day I’ve believed there was a chance for winning the stage. We knew the final circuit was up and down and pretty hard for a team to control. Unfortunately, the peloton didn’t let us much of an advantage but I broke away with the idea for finishing it off. I enjoyed the moment. It hasn’t worked out this time but I’ll go again to succeed. I’ve...

Markus Hoelgaard: "I have a good chance to win GC too"

“My goal was to try and win a stage again. I did it on the first day so now the pressure is off, so now it’ll be all about trying to keep the jersey. I couldn’t wait for the sprint so I went at the top of the last climb. I saw [Andreas] Leknessund took a corner badly so I went full gas in the downhill to get a gap and it worked out. I’m super happy. It’s...
