In the Queen stage in the Tour of Denmark, Jonas Vingegaard has been narrowly beaten by Lasse Norman Hansen in a sprint with four riders. The leader of Team Jumbo-Visma has moved up to fourth place in the overall classification, just nine seconds behind the new leader Niklas Larsen.

On the final climb, Vingegaard tried to go solo but didn't quite manage to get away from his companions.
"This is disappointing," Vingegaard explained. “In the sprint, I got a bit boxed in. I think I was the fastest otherwise. It was a tough stage and I felt good. The team also did a great job. But we keep trying. The next two days are very difficult and everything is still possible. "
