It was a classical sprinter stage on the second stage of Tour of Saudi Arabia today where August Jensen sprinted to 8th in the final bunch sprint.
“After a hectic day yesterday, we had a more relaxed day today where we did our best in the finishing bunch sprint”, says Michael Skelde. “We set out to sprint for Arvid De Kleijn, but unfortunately he suffered a mechanical.”
August Jensen was meant to take wind for Arvid in the final, why he spent a lot of energy, but when Arvid was set back by the mechanical, he took his own shot for a result.
“Arvid had great legs, so it’s a shame he didn’t get to sprint, but August did a good sprint so we’re satisfied with today. Another good stage for us here in Saudi Arabia. Tomorrow is another day, and we’ll keep on trying”, says directeur sportif Michael Skelde.
The young Dane Andreas Kron now sits 5th in the overall classification and is best placed in the youth classification, while the team sits 2nd in the team classification.
