Profiles Tour of Denmark 2022
Denmark has hosted an immensely popular Grand Depart for the Tour de France, and with a Danish race winner the country is in an all-time high. The Danmark Rundt - or Tour of Denmark, set to take place between the 16th and 20th of August will see the peloton back on Danish roads.
It will be a five-stage race starting with a long day into Koge which will be a strong fit for the sprinters. Stage two will have the riders go through an individual time-trial of 12.2 kilometers which will set an early order for the fight for the general classification. Stage three will be tricky, flat on paper but besides the 239 kilometers on the menu, it features seven gravel sectors which can cause havoc but also very exciting racing.
It is a race for all types of riders except those who enjoy the long ascents. The fourth day will once again see a bunch sprint likely in the town of Skive, whilst the final day of the race will go through the iconic Vejle circuit. It will be a short stage with only 126 kilometers on the menu but it will feature a very complicated finale, with a five-lap circuit including three hilltops in fast sequence that make it incredibly hard to keep any sort of race under control and is ideal for those looking to make spectacle.
