Grabbing his seventeenth UCI-ranked win of the season today, André Greipel powered to victory on the opening stage of the Tour of Denmark. The Lotto-Belisol sprinter raced the finish in Randers just ahead of Kristoff, and Bos, grabbing both stage success and the first leader’s jersey in the race.

“Francis De Greef was pulling the peloton all day to catch the breakaway. It was pretty tough with the wind,” said Greipel. “The last 700 meters were uphill…we had a really nice lead-out train and we could finish it off. The team brought me up to 200 meters to go, and then I started my sprint.”
