Markus Hoelgaard (Uno-X Pro Cycling Team) scored a massive win on home soil with victory on stage 1 of the Arctic Race of Norway.

The Norwegian kicked for the line with just over 1km to go on the closing circuit and held off a late charge from Alexander Kristoff (Norway) and Bryan Coquard (B&B Hotels p/b KTM) to win by two seconds. The win gives Hoelgaard the first leader’s jersey in this year’s race.

Hoelgaard’s winning move came after a demanding day over a relentlessly undulating course. In the finale a number of attacks were made with Warren Barguil (Arkéa-Samsic) and Odd Christian Eiking (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) notably aggressive with a powerful two-man attack on the final climb with just over 3km to go. However the pair were never out of sight of the main field and were quickly brought back before Hoelgaard jumped clear.

The 26-year-old, who won a stage in the race in 2019, and finished second overall in 2018, never looked back. He dropped the one rider able to hold his pace with under 1km to go and in a technical town finish managed to hold off the chasing peloton to take a memorable win for himself and his impressive team.

The early stage of the race had seen a four rider move escape the peloton with Alex Gougeard (AG2R Citroën), Alex Colman (Sport Vlaanderen – Baloise), Andre Tore Vabo (Team Coop), and Gleb Brussenskiy (Astana-Premier Tech) building up to a two minute advantage over the peloton.

Another four man breakaway set off in pursuit but they were reeled in with around 30km to go. At the point the original four man move had just 52 seconds of an advantage over the chasing bunch and it was Gougeard who moved clear on his own with 20km remaining. The Frenchman lasted 10km before the peloton finally made the catch but with little control at the front of the punch, and plenty of small rises dotted over the course it was only a matter of time before the elastic broke once more.

The highly rated Petr Vakoč (Alpecin-Fenix) found himself in a dangerous group off the front inside the last 7km but once more there was just enough cohesion in the peloton to nullify the move before Hoelgaard seized his moment and broke free.
