Despite having ridden more than 4,000km across Europe, the difference between seventh and eighth place came down to mere minutes for Alex Jacobson and Danny Green, with the pair finishing just 44 minutes apart.
Alex told race organisers at the finish in Brest:
“I’ve never been so wrecked… for the last 20km I’ve been sprinting to stay ahead of cap #9. We have been racing each other for the last 2 days.”
Congratulations on a top ten TCR, Alex and Danny. And kudos for maintaining your racing spirit to the bitter end.
