Fabio Jakobsen (Soudal-QuickStep) took his second sprint win at the Tour of Denmark, coming up fast from behind the chaos on the left of the wide finish to celebrate with his arms in the air.
Mads Pedersen (Lidl-Trek) was second, with Luca Colnaghi (Green Project-Bardiani CSF-Faizanè) third, Søren Wærenskjold (Uno-X) fourth and Australia’s Jensen Plowright (Alpecin-Deceuninck) fifth after Ramon Sinkeldam lead out the sprint with a long surge for Plowright.
Pedersen took a six-second time bonus for his second place and so is now only four seconds behind his teammate Mattias Skjelmose (Lidl-Trek) going into Saturday’s decisive 16.1km time trial around Helsingør north of Copenhagen.
Magnus Cort (EF Education-EasyPost) is third overall at a more distant 49 seconds.
