Sport: It writes Television 2 and NRK. The stage was neutralized after the overturn, and this means that the riders ride together to the finish line without a result.

About 30 riders overturned on the rain-soaked road during the race’s fifth stage. Among them were Uno-X rider Andreas Leknessund and overall candidates Remco Evenepoel and Primoz Roglic.

– It’s smooth as soap, said TV 2 commentator Christian Paasche right after the overturn.

So far, no serious injuries have been reported for any of the riders. Leknessund was quickly on his feet after falling over.

As the stage is neutralized, Evenepoel retains his overall lead ahead of Roglic in the race.
