While it was Belkin’s Steven Krui­jswijk who won the over­all, the first GC ti­tle of his ca­reer, all talk after stage 4 was of Kristoff’s win…but not be­cause it pleased his home fans. Thor Hushovd had bro­ken clear with 2km to go and it looked like the soonto-re­tire Nor­we­gian hero was set for a swan song vic­tory. Kristoff, though, had other ideas, chas­ing down his coun­try­man and pass­ing him in the last 100m. He won the stage but few new fans. Still, this was a 2.1 race, not a tes­ti­mo­nial crit.
