“We put our cards on Caleb (Ewan) in a sprint today. He was our best chance to win and it was always going to come down to that last lap and getting over the climb but he just didn’t have the legs unfortunately.”

2013 Italian champion Ivan Santaromita has wrapped up the 2015 Tour of Norway in sixth position overall. Santaromita finished 12th on the final stage to drop from fourth on general classification following third and tenth placings on the previous two stages.

 

Andreas Vangstad (Team Sparebanken Sør) attacked the peloton for a solo victory on the final stage whilst Jenson Hansen (Tinkoff – Saxo) finished alongside Santaromita to defend his lead and take out the Tour. Sport director Matt Wilson said the team took a gamble on the final stage but unfortunately it didn’t pay off.

 

“It was a pretty miserable day, pouring with rain and nine degrees for the whole stage so it was a rough finale for the guys,” Wilson said..

 

“We put our cards on Caleb (Ewan) in a sprint today. He was our best chance to win and it was always going to come down to that last lap and getting over the climb but he just didn’t have the legs unfortunately.”

 

Overall, ORICA-GreenEDGE finished with Santaromita’s strong ride for sixth and two narrow second places on the opening two stages for Ewan.

 

“We came here hoping to win a stage and we got pretty close on a couple of occasions,” Wilson said.

 

“Of course, when you miss that stage you have to say it was a little bit of a disappointment. But that being said, there are some great positives to draw from it. Santaromita’s result was great. He did a lot of work the first two stages, and lost a bit of time as a result of that, so all in all his ride was fantastic. The guys also did a good job to try and get Caleb up there for the win. Alexander Kristoff is a really fast guy and second place to him is certainly no disgrace.”
