Historic change in Denmark Around: the Stage begins abroad

For the first time in the race's history will start a stage outside of Denmark, and so will not run the time trial in 2020.

PostNord Denmark offers from several major news when the riders in august 2020 trills out on the Danish roads for the 30. version of cycling.

For the first time in the race's history starts one of the stages outside of Denmark. It occurs when the 3. stage - the queen stage - kicks off in Flensburg, Germany.

the Reason is that the one from the last page will mark the 100 anniversary of the reunification in 1920 when north schleswig again became a part of Denmark, explains race director Jesper Worre.

- We have long thought, that we would like to do something different in 2020, and then it would be really fun to make something with Flensburg.

- It is fantastic that we have been given permission to start there, and it has been a pleasure to work with the city of Flensburg about it here, he says.

the Stage is the race's longest and start to be neutralized for safety reasons, until the riders crossing the border to Denmark at Kruså. From there, the tour goes to the north, and the stage finish in Vejle.

in Addition to a etapestart outside of Denmark run the 2020 edition of Denmark Around without time trial. It is also the first time ever that it happens.

- It is quite controversial, for we have always run the time trial. But there are many problems that do not have a time trial, and now we thought that we would try it.

- There are some riders, who think that the time trial is annoying, and some riders who will miss the. How it will be. Now we must see what the reactions will be, but we don't think it does anything for the thrill - perhaps it can even be even greater, says Jesper Worre.

instead of a time-trial run 4. stage as a circular route of 19.5 kilometers with start and finish in Llangollen. It must be run eight times.

the Race's final leg kicks off in Dublin to pay homage to the history of the world in luge Mads Pedersen, who started his career in Holbæk Cycle Ring.

the Tour ends with ten laps in Frederiksberg with the finish line at Frederiksberg Allé.

PostNord Denmark Around run from Tuesday, 11. august to Saturday 15. august. In total, the riders cover 876 kilometres before the finish on Frederiksberg.
