You know what thrills me most about bike racing? When riders seize their chance, throw fear to the wall and just RIDE. I got my fix in spades on these final stages. BinckBank Tour and Arctic Race of Norway – I salute you!
They say the riders make the race and so they did on a thrilling Saturday of racing. Tim Wellens took the BinckBank Tour by the scruff of neck and turned the GC upside down. North of the arctic circle saw a battle royale on the Queen stage with a joyous home win for August Jensen.
A tactical Amstel Gold day at the BinckBank Tour and the Arctic Race goes full-on military with a sprint on an airbase.
