Title goes to Fuglsang as Saxo Bank dominates

Rasmussen runner-up

Saxo Bank was dominate in the Danish Elite Men’s time trial title race, with Jakob Fuglsang taking the title and leading an all Saxo Bank podium. Alex Rasmussen narrowly missed out on the title, just four seconds behind Fuglsang, but had a relatively large buffer to Michael Mørkøv in third place, a further 22 seconds behind.

Fuglsang had the benefit of pacing himself to Rasmussen’s time checks throughout the race. “The sports director gave me Alex' intermediates on the course,” he said. “First I was three seconds ahead of him. Then I was only two seconds ahead and from then on, I was highly motivated to keep moving and keep pushing myself as I knew we were very close.”

A dominate display by his riders pleased Team Saxo Bank owner Bjarne Riis, who praised Mørkøv’s remarkable move onto the podium. The team had five riders inside the top 10, with Frank Høj Christensen and Chris Anker Sørensen taking sixth and 10th places respectively.

“Naturally, I'm happy and proud to be able to fill the podium with our riders,” said Riis. “Alex and Jakob are expectedly going strong and they really deliver a great performance today.

“But it is truly remarkable to see Michael (Mørkøv) is now among the three best riders in the country. He did a great job and it only confirms that our work with the riders pays off,” he added.

Defending champion Lars Yitting Bak (HTC-Columbia) didn’t live up to his title as the man to beat over the 40 kilometre course, finishing 1:50 minutes behind down in ninth place.
