Tour de Luxembourg - Race Overview

Danish rider Chris Juul-Jensen concludes the Tour de Luxembourg in fifth place overall for ORICA-GreenEDGE after placing eighth on the final stage.

The stage finished at the top of a short, sharp climb where Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team) claimed his second stage victory of the week with Juul-Jensen finished strongly in eighth place to secure fifth on the general classification in what was ORICA-GreenEDGE's debut at the race.    

The Australian outfit headed into the five-day tour with ambitions of a stage victory and although the team missed out on the top result, sport director Matt Wilson was pleased with how the team performed throughout the week.

"The guys rode phenomenally today," Wilson explained after the stage. "We didn't have anything to lose today so we really threw it all on the line to try and have a good day and create an opportunity."
