It will be a fantastic day, great atmosphere and then together with some of my great friends and competitors - it's gonna be great fun."

"We are looking forward to create a party together with the local community in Struer and to give the spectators a unique opportunity to get close to the great cycling stars, whom they have follwed on TV the weeks prior to this event. We have some of the most varied bike terrains in the country with hills, mountain bike tracks in the forest and not least the wind, which riders in both Denmark Rundt, Danish Championships in mountain biking, and Giro d'Italia have previously experienced. Therefore, it was obvious for us to invite the greatest bike riders to our city and celebrate them with  a community party in the streets of Struer on the 30th of July 2019.
