Dave Everett has a chat with Irish-born Dane Chris Juul Jensen (Tinkoff-Saxo) in Belfast before the TTT on stage 1.
More about Chris Juul Jensen:
The Irish-born Dane lived his first 16 years in Ireland where he spent hours and hours climbing the steep slopes on his mountain bike. However, the 22-year-old talent made an early transition to road racing and launched his career at the Danish continental Team Glud & Marstrand LRÃ˜ where he was in four seasons before joining Team Saxo Bank – Tinkoff Bank in 2012. Christopher has a very versatile talent which he has demonstrated on a number of occasions. He can climb and is a solid force in the race against the clock but in his rookie season, he will use the races to feel how it really is to be among the best riders in the world. In the long run, Christopher will be a rider worth following and his big talent will be a lethal weapon in a long list of different races. With his team spirit attitude, he’s become a respected and much appreciated force on the team. –via the Specialized.com
