Dylan Teuns crowns it on his own

Prime Minister Erna Solberg attended the conclusive stage of the fifth Arctic Race of Norway as well as thousands of fans who welcomed a worthy winner as Dylan Teuns (BMC Racing Team) defended his lead by attacking in the finale to claim the last stage and GC, making it eighth victories in three weeks! In a brilliant manner, the young Belgian put his name after Thor Hushovd, Steven Kruijswijk, Rein Taaramäe and Gianni Moscon on the record books of the northernmost international bike race...

“On the first day, it was just an enjoyment to make a breakaway. On stage 2, it didn't have the legs for it. On stage 3, I was desperate to go away from the bunch.

 “It's like they sometimes say in soccer: attack is the best defense. That's what I had to do. Had I waited for the sprint, there was the risk that the Norwegian guy [August Jensen] would beat me in the sprint, finish third and takes GC away from me through the time bonuses. I was playing a little bit on the last climb like I did all day. I was waiting for my time to come. The guys at the front didn't have a big advantage. When I saw them just in front of me, the climb was almost over, it...
