"It will certainly give a good indication of Kiserlovski’s shape. We will support him in the finale and a rider like Chris Anker, who is going well after US Pro Challenge, will be very important."

Tour of Britain once again came down to a bunch sprint finish, where Fernando Gaviria took the win. Michael Mørkøv finished 14th as best placed Tinkoff-Saxo rider, while team sports director Nicki Sørensen looks forward to sending the team climbers headed by Robert Kiserlovski into action to test the shape on a 7.5km summit finish. 

 

After the conclusion of stage 4, Nicki Sørensen notes about the team’s effort on the long 217.4km stage from Edinburgh to Blyth:

 

“The stage was decided in a bunch sprint after a typical situation with a break out front. However, they never really stood a chance, as Movistar, who holds the leader’s jersey, took control at the front. It wasn’t the hardest stage although we did 217 kilometers. We worked to position Michael Mørkøv, but he lacked the final punch today to get in the mix among the riders fighting for the win”, says Nicki Sørensen and adds:

 

“However, I’m satisfied with the fact that they rode as a team and were well positioned in the finale. We will continue to focus on creating a better final result than what we’ve had on the previous stages”.

 

The riders at Tour of Britain will face new terrain, as they embark on an undulating stage 5 with a proper summit finish of 7.5km. Nicki Sørensen underlines that Robert Kiserlovski will lead the team effort.

 

“The next two days will be different and our climbers and punchy riders will come into play, not least tomorrow, where we have a real climb in the finale. It will certainly give a good indication of Kiserlovski’s shape. We will support him in the finale and a rider like Chris Anker, who is going well after US Pro Challenge, will be very important. We know that the field of sprinters is very strong here in Tour of Britain but tomorrow will be a very different day”, finishes Nicki Sørensen.
