Stage 1 - August 12: Skagen - Aalborg, 155 km

Scanlon takes command

By Tomas Nilsson

Irish Champion Mark Scanlon has won the first stage of the Tour of Denmark from Skagen to Aalborg, 155 km, after launching an attack in the final two kilometres from a group of 13. The main field came in two minutes after the winner.

Danish national Glenn Bak started this year-s race as he finished last year when he was awarded the most aggressive rider trophy. After 10 kilometres of racing he went away on his own and rapidly gain ground on the peloton. After another ten kilometres he had gained almost three minutes on the peloton that started a bit of a chase then.

The field split with 15 riders getting a gap but soon after half a dozen riders crashed and the tempo slowed down with one exception, Jehudi Schoonacker (Vlaanderen T Interim) who went off in pursuit of the Dane. Bak slowed down to wait for the Belgian and as soon as they joined forces at 28 km the gap started to grow again in the headwind towards Hirsthals where the duo had eight minutes on the field.

Glenn Bak secured the day's only hill sprint by passing ahead of Schoonacker at Tornby after 55 kilometres. In the peloton Team fakta upped the tempo approaching the hill. Christophe Agnolutto (Ag2R) and Michael Rasmussen (Rabobank) took the points for third and fourth and then thirteen riders got a gap. With cross winds for the rest of the stage this might have been a dangerous move, especially for CSC as local rival Fakta had no less than three riders (Hřj, Skelde and Jřrgensen) in the group against Julian Dean as the only CSC rider. The others were Agnolutto with team mates Mark Scanlon and Laurent Brochard, Rasmussen and Mathew Hayman (Rabobank), Aart Vierhouten (Lotto), Bart Voskamp (Bankgiroloterij), Sebastian Lang (Gerolsteiner) and Jurgen Van Goolen (Quick Step).

Schoonacker took the sprint in Hjřrring after 70 km but by then the chasers had taken most of the gap, Julian dean took the final point at Hjřrring and nine kilometres later the duo was caught. The group of now fifteen riders then had 1'20 to the field with the gap growing slowly. Glenn Bak couldn't hang on to the group for long, but the polka-dotted jersey will be his comfort since there was only one hill sprint on this stage.

CSC drove the main field hard in the cross wind creating echelons with the first group slowly narrowing the gap to some 50 seconds at 98 kilometres. This was as close as they got. The group worked well together however, with the obvious exception of Dean and Schoonacker, and managed to increase the gap again. Dean won the second sprint, at Aabybro, 118 km and the gap stabilized at a minute and a half with speeds around 50 km/h.

A number of small attacks started in the streets of finishing town Aalborg but it wasn't until two kilometres were left of the stage that three riders, Lang, Skelde and Scanlon, managed to get a gap and the Irish champion Mark Scanlon was able to win. The ten remaining in the group came in at ten seconds while the chasing peloton, or what was left of it, came in at two minutes. The final winner will probably be one of the thirteen breakaways since the Danish Tour seldom offers any huge time margins.
