“The biggest goal is the final stage in Copenhagen, which would be a dream come true if I could get that stage victory in the pocket. Last year, 13 riders managed to deny the chasing field."

In spite of CULT Energy Pro Cycling’s Michael Carbel’s young age, he will be starting his second Tour of Denmark this Tuesday. The 20 year-old Danish sprinter made his debut in 2014 at only 19 years of age. This year, he feels better prepared:


“I’ve had a rather long break from racing and haven’t been on the start line in a big race since the national championships. I have been training in Italy for the past three weeks. I have been working closely with InfoCrank in and around Livigno and after a few weeks of climbing and moto-pacing, I physically feel well-prepared,” says Carbel.


Carbel is already a well-respected sprinter on home soil and he has some pretty specific goals in the Tour of Denmark:


“The biggest goal is the final stage in Copenhagen, which would be a dream come true if I could get that stage victory in the pocket. Last year, 13 riders managed to deny the chasing field and not only did it completely ruin my chances of a win, it also changed the overall classification. So this year, I think the field will be more careful and it’s probably my best chance of getting a personal result. The first two stages could be crucial regarding the GC if the peloton splits up in the crosswind but on a quiet day, both stages could end up in bunch sprints,” concludes Carbel.


The complete line-up for Tour of Denmark is: Michael Carbel, Rasmus Guldhammer, Rasmus Quaade, Martin Mortensen, Michael Reihs, Mads Pedersen, Troels Vinther and Linus Gerdemann. The race starts on Tuesday and ends on Sunday on Frederiksberg, Copenhagen.
