Results of the final stage of the Tour of Denmark.
HTC-Columbia's Hayden Roulston took out the last stage of the Tour of Denmark in style on Sunday. On the final straight of next year's World Championships course in Copenhagen, Roulston flew uphill to take the win out of the last of many breaks that occurred during the stage.
"Hayden rode like he had diamonds in his legs today," said Sport Director Brian Holm. "He was amazing when he went up the final 800m straight."
"It was a very, very hard stage today," added Holm. "It was raining and it fast all day. At 120km everything was still together so there were constant attacks."
Just before the race hit the final laps a break with Mark Renshaw looked like it might stay away.
"[Tyler] Farrar was also in the break and it looked like it might work but Renshaw punctured and came back to the peloton so then we started to chase. When we caught the break the next one went with Roulston in it."
"I'm really happy with the race today. We had someone in every break. All in all it was a good week for us. Three wins with three different riders so I'm happy. [Rasmus] Guldhammer also won the white jersey and came in sixth overall so it was a very good race for him also."
