Having had a lot of success early on in his career from 2009 to 2013, Fuglsang became one of the most consistent and hardest working domestiques in pro cycling.

The 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné saw Fuglsang take on a nearly forgotten role as he took the reigns of Astana and strove to win the 69th edition of the race besting teammate Fabio Aru, Chris Froome and Richie Porte in an exciting four way fight on the last day.

In the upcoming Tour de France, it’s unclear whether the Dane will maintain his domestiques role of carry on with an attempt at GC. With the return of Fabio Aru it is thought that he will be more useful in protecting the Italian.
