Despite a heavy rain on course Sunday, his teammates brought Jakob safely to the finish line to capture the win in his 'second home'.
Jakob Fuglsang has won the General Classification in the Skoda Tour of Luxembourg. The larger part of the 154 km between Mersch and the old town of Luxembourg City was raced with heavy rain, forcing the organizers to finalize the GC standing after the first passage of the finish line with 47 km left on the menu. The seven remaining laps, each 6.8 km long, would only designate the stage winner.
RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK came to Luxembourg focused on winning the overall on home soil, and the team accomplished their goal in dominating fashion. With a very solid line-up, including four former race winners, the team took responsibility from day one. Jakob Fuglsang: "The team dedicated themselves to winning, and I really have to thank them all. We had such a strong team here. Working together on all five stages made this possible and I’m so happy it worked out for us.”
The team also earned top honors in the Teams classification, marking a successful week in Luxembourg.
