Denmark (3) - Meurisse again in front

Denmark (3) - Meurisse again in front

Xandro Meurisse again joined the battle for the stage victory in stage 3 of the Tour of Denmark (2.HC, 01-05/08). A breakaway of five riders rode in front all day, but was caught at 4 kilometers from the finish. In the bunch sprint there was nothing to do about the fast Tim Merlier, Xandro Meurisse again positioned himself in front and finished 11th. In the GC he now ranks 7th, 21 seconds behind race leader Van Aert. On Saturday a 19.1km long time trial is scheduled around Nykøbing Falster, which will reshape the classification.
