Denmark (5) - Meurisse top 15 in stage and final GC

Xandro Meurisse ensured a top 15 in the fifth stage of Tour of Denmark (2.HC, 01-05/08). The final stage was made tough by the riders who battled for the final GC. On the predominantly flat Danish roads the peloton was strechted out and splitened a few times. Anyhow, a bunch sprint decided the stage victory in Copenhagen (Frederiksberg). Tim Merlier took a second stage win, Xandro Meurisse finished 13th. In the final GC of the Danish five day stage race Meurisse moves up from 16th to 13th position.
