Cycling not dead yet in Denmark

This past weekend's Post Danmark cycle race was a success, despite the sport's recent negative press

More than 100,000 people lined the streets of Copenhagen to watch some of the top names in cycling compete in the Post Danmark Rundt race. This despite polls which show that cycling is becoming less and less popular among Danes.

According to a survey conducted by daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende, two-thirds of the Danes polled indicated that they no longer were interested in cycling. But the fine summer weather may have been a determining factor in bringing the masses out for this year's race.

Switzerland's Fabian Cancellara, who rides for Denmark's Team CSC, won the race and was very pleased with his input.

'I surprised myself this week. After the Tour de France I was hanging my head a bit, and the last few weeks haven't gone so well either, so I certainly didn't expect this,' said the winner.

Alex Rasmussen was the race's best Dane, finishing in eighth place.
