Final KM: Stage 4 BinckBank Tour, Stage 1 Arctic Race of Norway

Theuns in Belgium and Teuns in Norway. Can’t say that happens very often can you?

BinckBank Tour Stage 4: Lanaken to Lanaken, 160.7km

Trek-Segafredo nailed the lead out, Jasper Stuyven was incredible and Edward Theuns nailed the sprint finish. Marko Kump (UAE Emirates) placed second and Tim Merlier of  Veranda’s Willems Crelan rounded out the podium. But oh, it was a heartbreak catch in the finale for Quick Step Floor’s  Yves Lampaert. Position at the top of the GC remains unchanged.

Video, we pick it up at the flamme rouge

Twelve months ago Edward was recovering from a crash in the Tour de France that left him bed ridden with fractured vertebrae – it was an emotional day.

You can do it Andre!!! In a candid interview Lotto-Soudal’s Andre Greipel spoke about his sprint doldrums.

Part of the reason we LOVE Andre is that he’s a real team rider. He isn’t able to be at thepointy end the stage so he just attacked earlier…

You just gotta believe as your fans do…

Arctic Race Stage 1: Engenes to Narvik, 156.5km

There is just no stopping BMC’s Dylan Teuns these days. Fresh from conquering the Tour of Poland, the in-form Belgian added another stage win to his palmares and another race lead jersey to his wardrobe. Feisty racing on the hilly circuit in Narvik made it hard for any team to exert control. As they hit the uphill finish Team Coop’s August Jensen powered to second with Andrea Pasqualon (Wanty Groupe-Gobert) taking a fine third.

YES!!!! #LadiesFavourite  Bernie Eisel (Dimension Data) in the break and on the podium to receive the best jersey in Norwegian racing – the mighty Salmon jersey.

Here he is talking with a very rugged looking Thor Hushovd…
