Trek-Segafredo Team (France) - Press Release: After missing his big goal in the Grand Depart, Mads finds his moment in Stage 13 of the Tour de France.
Mads Pedersen can add a Tour de France stage to his palmares. The former World Champion had to wait well past his target goal, the Grand Depart in Denmark, to find victory and it happened in Stage 13 – a hot and hilly day that went to the breakaway – as he sprinted to a huge win for Trek-Segafredo.
“It’s incredible to finally take a win. I knew the shape was pretty good but it the last two weeks there were not a lot of chances for a guy like me, so to take the chance today and get rewarded… It’s really nice, not only for me, for the whole team,” said Pedersen. “I don’t think I have realized yet what I have done. It’s a nice milestone and I am happy with this but of course I want more. I hope this is just the beginning.
