Team Sky dines on Norwegian salmon prize at camp

by CyclingTips

Team Sky’s Gianni Moscon ‘bought’ dinner for his teammates at their winter training camp in Mallorca when the first part of the 500kg of salmon he earned as a prize for winning a stage of the Arctic Race of Norway was delivered to him.

“It tasted absolutely fabulous,” said Chris Froome. “I have never tasted such good salmon before.”

Norwegian TV reports that a delegation including seafood chef Adrian Løvold traveled to the team’s camp and prepared sashimi of scallops and salmon, grilled salmon and Norwegian Christmas herring to riders and staff.

Many races have additional prizes offered by the stage hosts, including beer, food or other local delicacies.

Moscon will receive three more shipments of his half-ton Salmon prize, including one at Christmas.
