On its third day in Denmark, the Tour will be in the continental part of the country, formed by the Jutland peninsula. The town of Vejle is named after the fjord that dominates it and has long been known for its textile industry, which has earned it the nickname of “the Manchester of Denmark”. But sports fans are much more likely to know it for Vejle BK, five-time winners of the Danish league and the club that produced the 1977 Ballon d’Or winner Allan Simonsen. His attachment to the club led him to finishing his career with the team after spells with Mönchengladbach and Barcelona.
