Tour of Denmark

Rasmussen, still a star in Denmark, hopes to get back to the Tour, somehow

It has indeed been a busy year for Michael Rasmussen. Only nine months ago he still didn’t have a team to race for. Today he co-owns and heads a team that was put together at sprint speed just for him. This week his Christina Watches Onfone team raced the Tour of Denmark – the biggest race so far for the Continental squad — but the team's ambitions go much higher. The hope is to get a wild card for the Giro d’Italia already next year and, eventually, earn a place in the Tour de France.
