Now racing its sixth consecutive PostNord Danmark Rundt, Team Novo Nordisk is eager to animate the Danish race that is home to the team’s title sponsor Novo Nordisk when the five-day event kicks off on August 1st in Aalborg.
“The Tour of Denmark is very special for us. We are racing at the home of Novo Nordisk, which brings an added pressure to perform well in front of our fans and supporters,” said Team Novo Nordisk Senior Vice President of Athletics Vassili Davidenko. “We know the roads and know what to expect during this race, so we adjusted our preparation accordingly. But even with all that knowledge, there are always surprises to handle.”
For 2018, the Tour of Denmark returns to its normal slot of mid to late summer on the UCI schedule after taking place in September last year and experiencing severe weather that led to one stage being cancelled.
“August is a good month for racing in Denmark. We hope for good weather but know to be ready for any weather we may experience during the race,” Davidenko explained.
