Denmark (1) - WGG strong together

In the opening stage of Tour of Denmark (2.HC, 12-16/09) a young Danish rider was able to surprise the peloton. Five riders were part of the break of the day, but with 35 kilometer to go their mission was over. In the final Kévin Van Melsen tried to sneak away, alas without success. With five kilometers to go the young Dane Casper Pedersen accelerated. He surprised the peloton and took the day's victory. Pieter Vanspeybrouck finished 13th. Also Stenuit, Van Melsen, Minnaard and Dhaene finished in the first group of 41 riders.
