Niklas Axelsson


Niklas Axelsson's ride in the Tour of Lombardy. Suicide-attacking all the great names in just the right moment and managing to stay away until the very last kilometre, this performance and his eventual defeat made for both goose pimples on the back and tears in the eyes of many a fan. Hopefully, he will show more of this next season with Mercury!
