logokatusha TOUR DES FJORDS 2013

Another great victory for Katusha Team in the Norwegian competition “Tour des Fjords”: after yesterday’s triumph by Sergey Chernetckii, today Alexander Kristoff proved to be the fastest in the massive sprint that decided the second stage, 103 km long from Hjelmeland to Forsand.

Kristoff defeated Robert Wagner and Jetse Bol, both from Belkin team, respectively in second and third position.

In general classification, Chernetckii still holds the leadership, waiting for the third stage, a 24 kilometers long team time trial that will take place today in the afternoon.

“Today I felt better than yesterday – said KRISTOFF – even if I’m still not in my top shape. In the last climb I suffered a lot, but after I was able to come back and take part to the final sprint: I’m happy, this victory is very important for me because it came at home, in front of my fans. The stage was very hard: our rivals attacked a lot and tried to change the situation in general classification. I think the team did a great job to help Sergey, and I’m glad that Katusha managed to keep the leader’s jersey too”.
