"The only thing I can do - said Laurens De Vreese, ninth in the GC - is to give my best. I'm not a time trial specialist, but the undulating path can help me. "
"Today was a very hard stage - he continued - I've been with the front riders and I lost some meters only on the final climb."
"The boys have been struggling and I'm pleased - commented sport director Dmitri Sedoun - in addition to De Vreese, even Lars Boom and Arman Kamyshev were fighting in the first positions of the bunch."
The stage was won by the Danish Michael Valgren who is also the new leader of the Tour of Denmark. Belgian De Vreese, as mentioned, is ninth at 24 seconds from the leadership.
The fourth stage is a time trial of 20 kilometers with start and finish in Nyborg. The route is moved and fits both specialists and the high-powered riders.
