Tour de Luxembourg
Stage 2: Rosport to Schifflange - Stage Details

ORICA-GreenEDGE finished with a top-20 result on the second stage of the Tour de Luxembourg with Danish rider Chris Juul-Jensen climbing to 17th place.

The 168kilometre rolling stage concluded with a gruelling steep climb up to the finish line in Schifflange where Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team) proved to be the strongest in the final to claim the stage win.

"It was a really hard finishing climb today," explained sport director Matt Wilson. "Basically as steep as the Muur de Huy just not as long. It was a really nasty little climb, only a couple of hundred metres long but a perfect stage for Gilbert."
