Kristoff wins final stage as Evenepoel seals overall victory in Norway


Alexander Kristoff won the final stage of the Tour of Norway as Remco Evenepoel held on to the overall title.

“Overall, it was a very good week for the team. We can be proud of ourselves, of the way we rode, of the Wolfpack spirit we put on display every single time and of how we always believed in ourselves,” Evenepoel said.

“It was my first race since Liège–Bastogne–Liège, so I didn’t know how I would fare, but I returned at a high level, which is encouraging as we kick off the second part of the season and my road to the Vuelta a Espana.”

The final stage was decided in a bunch sprint where home favourite Kristoff took the stage win.

“The stage almost passed in front of my house today, I’m so happy to take the win here in Stavanger,” Kristoff said.

“I don’t only know the final because the roads are familiar to me, but also because I already won a couple of times here. But last year I didn’t manage to take the victory and that’s why my happiness is even greater today.”
