Deceunick-Quickstep’s Remco Evenepoel won both stage 5 of the Tour of Denmark and the overall competition.
The 21-year-old Belgian rider pulled off the double triumph on Saturday afternoon, two days after putting in the ride of the Tour when despite a crash, he lapped the peloton.
Evenepoel had a minute and a half on his nearest rival after that feat and nobody could close him down with the win in his sights. He finished the Tour 1:42 ahead of Pedersen in second, and more than two minutes clear of Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma).
