Tour des Fjords: Boasson Hagen wins final stage

Norwegoan biker Edvald Boasson Hagen (MTN-Qhubeka) captured the conclusive stage of the Tour des Fjords in a thrilling finale in the Stavanger area on Sunday.

Daryl Impey (RSA) Orica-GreenEdge came second, with Marco Haller (Aut) Team Katusha third.

Austrian Haller took over from Søren Kragh Andersen (Tre For-Blue Water) to clinch the first stage race overall win of his career in the home of his teammate Alexander Kristoff, whose three initial stage victories have ensured the success of the event.

“I’m very happy to finally win a race after two years,” Boasson Hagen said. “I was feeling very good at the Tour of Norway last week and during the Tour des Fjords but I had to convert that into a victory. I’m glad it happens here in Norway before I’ll go to France to ride the Dauphiné.
