Alexander Kristoff secured the second stage win in the Tour des Fjords on Thursday, after he won the opening stage the day before. Second was Jasper Stuyven (Trek Factory Racing). This was Kristoff's 15th stage win of the season.
“It was hard to wait for the sprint because it was very cold”, Kristoff told Cyclingnews. “But we had the sprint under control. I was never concerned in the last three kilometers. But of course, you never know. There are many fast guys here. My advantage is to have the best lead out.”
