Jakob Fuglsang JAKOB WINS LIEGE - BASTOGNE - LIEGE VideoJakob Fuglsang interview
While riders and teams may be following precautions before, during, and after racing, it's at hotels where they are at greatest risk.
I was not afraid of not coming back, but it was a strange move by Trek. For there is an unwritten rule that one does not sit up to lead when another has a problem.
It is not okay to try to profit from it. The truth behind his mysterious character, the beginning of his successful career, the passion for cycling, the ups and down in his career but also in life, the hard and long process to becoming the popular pro cyclist, the olympic silver medal that changed it all and the big dream of the rainbow stripes and the yellow jersey.
The book has been released and presented in Copenhagen on Wednesday 6th June. After an impressive attack in the final 15 kilometers of the Queen stage, Jakob finished his first solo victory in But luckily halfway the downhill the road went up a little bit and at that point my sports director Dimitry Fovonov was screaming at me that now was the moment.
But just after that moment I was in the perfect position, just behind the group that was mostly looking at each other so I took my chance.
I'm really happy with this victory, it gives a really good feeling and a lot of confidence for the start of my preparations for the Tour de France in a few weeks.
It was akm long stage starting and finishing in Sion. With 3 climbs of the 1st category and 2 climbs of 2nd category, the riders had a hard day on the bike.
At the start of the final climb, the breakaway was caught and it all came down to a small group of riders. Jakob attacked but got caught again.
With 15 km to go he then attacked again for a solo finish in the streets of Sion. With his stage victory, Jakob climbed to the 4th place in General Classification.
Jakob Finished 10th at this year's Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Winner Bob Jungels attacked with 20 km to go and remained in front of the chasing group of favorites until the finish.
Jakob was part of the favorites group but Michael Woods and Romain Bardet were the fastest in the end and took the other podium spots.
Today Gilbert and Jungels did a good job. I tried to do my best but it was not enough today. I knew it was hard to get Bob Jungels back, but nothing happened in our group to close the gap.
An unexpected breakaway of six riders, including Tanel Kangert, almost made it to the finish. But at the end it all came down to the final climb of Mur de Huy, with Julian Alaphillipe finishing first.
Jakob was the first riders of Astana Pro Team to cross the finish line in a 16th place. But when Tanel Kangert took off in the breakaway we hoped he could make it to the finish with that group, because we knew this would be the only way we could race for a victory.
At the end it was a pity that he didn't make it and I did my best on the final climb. After impressive teamwork during the day, from closing the gap with the breakaway to Jakob attacking several times in the final, it was Michael Valgren who finished it off with his second win of the season.
I was a little excited to see how I was after a month without racing. But I was really happy with my feeling today.
We ended up in the perfect position, together with Michael, to race for the victory and it's great that we could finish it like this. I'm happy for Michael that he won after his second place of a few years ago.
This year the luck wasn't on Jakob's side in Paris Nice. A crash 2,8 km before the finish caused Jakob to lose on the 1st stage, which ended his GC hopes.
The team anyway worked hard and Luis Leon Sanchez managed to become the new race leader. They tried everything to defend the yellow jersey.
Jakob sacrificed himself helping Luis Leon Sanchez to remain race leader. On stage 7, a final climb of 16,3 km awaited the riders. Jakob worked hard to help defend the leader's jersey but they were defeated and had to pass it to Simon Yates.
Vuelta a Andalucia Jakob finishes 4th overall. The whole team has been racing very strong and that is the most important thing as the final result was not what we came for.
But we showed that we're there, that we're ready to fight so the spirit is good. Today I felt really good and I raced a good time trial, but somehow it was not enough at the end to challenge the guys on the podium.
The numbers were good, the feeling was good, and that's what I'll take with me to the next races. Jakob's next race will be Paris Nice which is one of his first big goals in the season.
Jakob started his season very strong, ending on the final podium of the Volta a la Communitat Valenciana. The 4th stage took the riders over a mountainous route.
Pro team Astana tried to launch several attacks in the final climb, Jakob was trying to take the overall victory but the yellow jersey Alejandro Valverde was unbeatable.
I think we can be happy with the race. It's a good start, this is my first race and i feel my form is ok. We still have some times to work a bit more and to improve for the first big goals of the season but so far everything is running perfectly.
The final 5th stage of the race has been held between Paterna and city center of Valencia and ended in a bunch sprint. Astana Pro team did a very strong race with Luis Leon Sanchez 2nd and Jakob 3rd overall as well as the victory of the team classification.
Now we are sure that we are right where we wanted to be at the start of the season. So we're leaving Valencia in a good mood and with some strong motivation for the upcoming races" said Jakob.
On the 2nd stage of the Volta a la Communitat Valenciana, Jakob and his team mate Luis Leon Sanchez did a brave race ending 2nd and 3rd.
The stage was a good first opportunity for the riders to show their strenghts in the early part of the season. With 2km to the top of the final climb El Garbi, Jakob attacked and was followed by Alejandro Valverde.
They passed over the climb together with an advantage of 15 seconds on the main group. A bit later, Luis Leon Sanchez attacked from the chasing group to bridge to the leaders.
He came strong and I realised it could be a good moment to go with him. It was our plan to try something in the final of today's stage so it was a right moment for that After, Luis Leon joined us and i think it was the main reason why we could stay in front until the finish, he was super strong today.
Also Luis Leon and Alejandro knew the distance and it was an advantage too. The trio worked hard the last 30 km, holding a good advantage of seconds to the chasing group of 23 riders.
Finally, the 3 leaders came together to the finish to decide the stage victory in a sprint. Alejandro Valverde became the stage winner with Luis Leon 2nd and Jakob 3rd.
We did not win the sprint but it was not easy having a riders like Valverde on the wheel. We can be happy, in the end it was a good day for the team and for the moral.
After today's stage Valverde moved in to the leader position of the general classification. Luis Leon Sanchez in 2nd with 4 seconds behind.
Jakob is now sitting 3rd Overall with 6 seconds. After 2 important trainingcamps in december an january, Jakob will start his season with the Volta a la Communitat Valenciana.
Stage 2 of the Tour of Almaty started at the Halyk Arena in Almaty and finished near the famous speed skating center Medeu.
With more or less 5 km to go, on a steep part of the final climb, Jakob launched a powerful attack. He was able to get an advantage and to keep it until the finish line, taking a nice solo victory.
I had some bad luck during the last few months with that crashes at the Tour de France and later at the criterium in Denmark. So, I had to do my best to recover well and to come back on a good level.
We did a training on the course of the stage and on the final climb, so I knew what to expect. The team did an excellent job, supporting me during the day and chasing all attacks of the rivals behind me.
Yesterday we had a tough day, but I tried to save as much energy as possible to be ready for today. Finally, everything went like we wanted.
I am happy to win in the mountains, this gives me an additional confidence in myself. Besides, it is a great pleasure to get a win in Almaty, in Kazakhstan for all our fans here.
Jakob will start racing again in the Grand prix cycliste de Quebec and Montreal. His goal is to find back the rhythm, and test his shape for the upcoming races.
After having recovered from his Tour de France injuries, Jakob started racing again on a criterium in Herning, Denmark. Bad fortune appeared to be following him as he got crashed by another rider on the Criterium.
Following a hospital visit, they diagnosed that Jakob fractured his left collarbone which required surgery. Jakob has been transferred to Herentals in Belgium to have surgery done by Dr.
Toon Claes who did a fantastic job. After some rehabilitation, Jakob recovered very fast and soon started training outside again. The goal was to be able to start racing again in Canada for the Grand prix cycliste de Quebec and Montreal.
Jakob started the Tour de France as team leader with a great motivation of doing a top 5 classification in general classement. Jakob made is safely through the first week of the Tour and started the second week with a 5th position in general classement.
After having finished 2nd overall with teammate Roal Paulissen in Cape Epic in , he came back with Paulissen again the following year and claimed the overall win.
He was leading the edition of Danmark Rundt heading into the last stage. He had been in contact with Team Saxo Bank , and the deal was finally signed the day before he won Danmark Rundt.
Despite having signed the contract, Fuglsang's manager wanted him to wait as his market value could inflate if he won Danmark Rundt which he did the following day.
Fuglsang won his second Danmark Rundt in August and had also won Tour of Slovenia one and a half months previous. He crashed in the first couple stages when he rode into the back of a tanker due to limiting road control.
The following year would be a controversial year for Team Saxo Bank. It was uncertain whether the team would continue in due to a lack of sponsorship interest.
Fuglsang wanted to stay at the team but got a great offer from Leopard Trek which was enough to persuade him.
In July , Fuglsang started his first ever Tour de France. Despite most of the team set to leave in the season, Riis managed the team well and Andy Schleck would end up winning the race due to Alberto Contador 's Clenbuterol case.
Fuglsang had a mixed start to his season with finishing 11th at Tour of Oman before abandoning at Paris-Nice. He had to wait until the middle of April to get his first top result of the season.
Fuglsang could not quite follow the pace but managed to finish 4th just 5 seconds behind Gilbert.
It was decided from the start of the season that Fuglsang would ride the Tour de France as a domestique for the Schleck brothers, and he showcased great form in his final stage race before the Tour.
Delivering yet another great Time trial, Fuglsang finished 4th overall in the Tour de Suisse. Arriving at the Tour de France , Leopard Trek was one of the favorites to take the win.
Later in the race Fuglsang dropped out of the top 10 but the Tour was still a success with Andy Schleck taking a stage win and 2nd overall, and Fränk Schleck taking 3rd overall.
Fuglsang was just the second Danish rider to wear the jersey, which was previously worn by Lars Michaelsen. His teammate Daniele Bennati took over the lead on stage 2.
Fuglsang put in another great Time trial on stage 10 and finished 6th which moved him up to 2nd overall. However, later in the race he would drop to 11th overall.
He was slated to be his team's leader in the Giro d'Italia , but had to withdraw due to knee problems and was replaced with Fränk Schleck.
He stated that he wanted to race for another squad in the next season since he was not happy with the way things were going within the team.
During races and training camps the team was often split and racing as two teams, not one. Having phoned the general manager Johan Bruyneel , it was confirmed that Fuglsang was not riding any more World Tour races in Fuglsang left RadioShack—Nissan at the end of the season, and joined Astana on an initial three-year contract from the season onwards.
As Dan Martin attacked on stage 9, Fuglsang saw it as a perfect opportunity to gain time on the other contenders, and attacked with Martin.
They got a gap straight away, and started to work together. Inside the final kilometers it was clear to see that the bunch could not catch them.
Fuglsang led out the sprint from the front, and as Martin attacked, he could not follow and had to settle with 2nd place. It was not until stage 13 that Fuglsang again was on the offence, when Saxo—Tinkoff attacked during sections of crosswinds.
Fuglsang was the only rider from Astana in the break and finished 4th on the stage, advancing to 6th overall. His efforts on that stage gained praise from his team-mates and staff.
From then on, Fuglsang battled with Dutch rider Bauke Mollema for the 6th place. Eventually he ended up finishing 7th overall, after a good performance in the mountains and the time trials.
Throughout the spring of the season, Fuglsang showed he had consistent form at the major World Tour stage races.
He was set to help Vincenzo Nibali win the Tour de France. On the final stage of the one-week stage race, Nibali attacked but was later dropped due to his efforts.
Fuglsang was then ordered to pace Nibali up the final climb, but when the pace kept getting slower, Fuglsang was then finally ordered to ride his own chance.
This sparked a lot of controversy at Astana since the leader for the Tour de France, was weaker than his domestique.
On stage 2 of Tour de France, Fuglsang attacked a few times until Nibali managed to get away and win the stage in the end.
Just a few days later, Fuglsang and Nibali were riding together on the cobblestone stage and dropped all the other contenders. However, on the final sector of cobblestones, Nibali was once again having problems, and could not close the gap to Lars Boom who rode away in the distance and won the stage.
Fuglsang had to slow down his pace in order to get Nibali to the finish line, and once again Fuglsang finished second on a Tour de France stage. However, on the first climbing stage, Fuglsang showed weakness and dropped to fourth overall.
On the following stages he dropped out of the top 10, and lost even more time on stage 13 when he hit a bottle on the downhill to the final climb.
However already on the first mountain stage, Nibali looked vulnerable and Fuglsang was awarded his own chance by the Astana team.
