"However, both Michael and Manuele finished up there with the best of them, which means that we have two cards to play in the GC and in addition we have Matti Breschel for the punchy finales in the race," Guidi says

Tinkoff-Saxo got safely thorugh a dangerous prologue in the Tour de Luxembourg and had both Michael Mørkøv and Manuele Boaro in the top 10. This leaves the team with two GC riders for the rest of the race while Matti Breschel will target the punchy finishes later in the race.

 

Today Tour de Luxembourg was launched with a 2.6 kilometer short prologue in the streets of Luxembourg with a steep cobbled rise to the finish line. Tinkoff-Saxo participate with Michael Mørkøv, Matti Breschel, Ivan Rovny, Nikolay Trusov, Oliver Zaugg, Michael Kolar, Manuele Boaro and Marko Kump.
 
Danny Van Poppel (Trek Factory Cycling) won the prologue completing the course in 3.58 minutes.
 
Tinkoff-Saxo had two riders in the top-10 as Michael Mørkøv finished 8th and Manuele Boaro 9th – both 13 seconds behind:
 
“None of our riders took the risks needed to win this prologue and that’s ok for me as the course was dangerously slippery and to risk injuries at this point is a no-go. However, both Michael and Manuele finished up there with the best of them, which means that we have two cards to play in the GC and in addition we have Matti Breschel for the punchy finales in the race. We still haven’t decided our GC captain here because with this course and the these finalse, anything can happen and we’ll just have to wait and see how the race progresses,” said DS Fabrizio Guidi after the prologue.
