Odd Christian Eiking settled for second as he only gained two seconds, half of what he needed, over the race leader in the final uphill in Harstad where Philipp Walsleben outclassed Niki Terpstra for the stage win.
Best young rider Victor Lafay rounded out the podium of the 8th edition of the northernmost bike race that showcased stunning landscapes once again.
“Sometimes you’re the nail and today I was the hammer,” Hermans said. “It’s a nice one to add to the list. It’s one of the Pro Series races, it’s the only WorldTour win I still miss. I’m really happy with this win. I didn’t come here for anything less. I’m happy I could finish it off.”
