Pedersen Wins Men’s Road Race

Pedersen Wins Men’s Road Race

Denmark’s Mads Pedersen came out on top to win the elite men’s world road race in brutal conditions in Yorkshire. The 23-year-old caused a huge upset when becoming the first ever Dane to win the race, as he pipped Italy’s Matteo Trentin in a sprint finish, while Switzerland’s Stefan Kung took the Bronze.

Atrocious wet weather made conditions resulted in the race being shortened and a number of the field opted to pull out following a number of crashes on the course. But Pedersen managed to stick it out to claim a famous win. Trentin looked to be favourite out of the leading trio to take the sprint finish, and made the first move with 200m to go.

However, 23-year-old Pedersen had more in his locker and in the end powered to a comfortable win. “This is unbelievable,” said Pedersen. “I didn’t expect this and it wasn’t the plan. I hoped that when I saw the finish line all the pain would be gone and I could do a good sprint. “It’s every rider’s dream to wear the rainbow jersey – for me to do it now is unbelievable.”
