Norweigian salmon producers were handing out prizes after each stage of the race, however it was the winner of stage three who hit the jackpot.

“It is the first time I’ve won something,” said the Italian at the time. “I will probably share it with my teammates”, also adding that while in Norway he had eaten salmon before eat of his races.

According to a local tv report the first batch of salmon was delivered by Polar Quality and Kvarøy Fisheries, and Moscon did indeed conclude that he had enough to spare a little for his team-mates.

80 people were served sashimi of scallops and salmon, grilled salmon and Norwegian Christmas herring, prepared by seafood chef Adrian Løvold from Trondheim.

After three hard days of training, the riders had a rest day riding at a low intensity and Løvold, an enthusiastic cyclist himself, joined them. “We exchanged great tips and tricks both ways, since they were very interested in food, and I in cycling,” he said.

Moscon will get another salmon delivery before Christmas and then two more early next year.
