The 4th stage of the Tour des Fjords would see a massive shake up in the GC as riders would cross the finish in one’s and two’s today. Soren Kragh Andersen (Trefor – Blue Water) would take the stage win after out sprinting Amets Txurruka (Caja-Rural) and teammate Michael Olsson. The 3 top riders were initially part of a 17 rider breakaway that went clear with 70km to go. Nic Dougall and Kristian Sbaragli were part of this decisive move and the large group were able to build up a lead of just over 3 minutes. With enough fire power upfront and an unsure chase.
The 3rd stage of the Tour des Fjords would take the riders to the sea, literally. At one point we were a bit more than 200m below sea level, it was fascinating. It was also a great stage for us as Edvald Boasson Hagen again made the podium by sprinting to 3rd..
