Tinkoff-Saxo hoped that Mat Breschel would be achieve to score another top 10 result in the Grand Prix Quebec. However, the Dane was held up behind Arthur Vichot's crash after having been poorly positioned for the sprint.

 

Tonight, a delegation of Tinkoff-Saxo riders participated in GP Cycliste de Quebec in Canada. 11 laps on a 18.1 kilometers long circuit with a total of more than 2300 meters of altitude difference. An early breakaway quartet was caught early on, which prompted several new attacks and Nicki Sørensen was flashing the jersey in the finale. Unfortunately, he was caught and the race was decided in a bunch sprint. 

 

The early breakaway ran out of steam with 50 kilometers remaining and a series of new attacks dominated the final part of this World Championships-like one-day race. Tinkoff-Saxo’s Danish veteran, Nicki Sørensen took part of a very strong breakaway with ten other riders with just 30 kilometers to go. However, the peloton caught the 39 year-old Dane with 7 kilometers remaining.

 

A new hail-storm of attacks emerged from the pack but the race was concluded in a small bunch sprint where Simon Gerrans (Orica GreenEdge) took an impressive win. Tinkoff-Saxo’s Matti Breschel was in the mix but was held back by a crash on the finish line.

 

DS Fabrizio Guidi had this comment after the race:

 

“Throughout the race, we were preparing Matti for the finale and our young boys did an excellent job. We had cover the new breakaway with 50 kilometers to go and Nicki was all set and ready to roll and I think he did a fine job out there. This is one of his final races of his career and I think he showed today that he’s still got it at the age of 39. In the bunch sprint, Matti was too far back in the group and he was caught up behind the crash blocking him from sprinting. I hope that we will get a better result in Montreal on Sunday”.
