Yesterday, Canadian time trail champ  Svein Tuft won his first European race. Stage 5 ITT in the Tour of Denmark, proved to be the perfect short course (19.4km) for personal success. The Garmin Transitions rider powered through the course in 23min 20sec.

It wasn't cut n' dry. Aussie Richie Porte was off only 37 hundredths of a second. I'm not certain but this maybe the closest in time trailing history. Dane Jakob Fuslang finished third, 4 secs back thus taking over the leader's jersey.

'Tough' as his name describes his time trialing ability and his monster like way of dominating a short course moved the Canadian to second overall.

Today's stage 6 was the finale won by Kiwi Hayden Roulston. Jakob Fuslang won his third consecutive Tour of Denmark while Svein Tuft scored a fine second only 27 seconds behind!
