Boasson Hagen keeps overall lead



Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka did well to defend Edvald Boasson Hagen’s leader’s jersey on stage 2 of Tour of Norway on Thursday. In the sprint, the Norwegian champion finished third and thereby increased his lead in the general classification.

Thursday's 194 km long stage from Eidsvoll to Brumunddal took place in horrible weather conditions. Only three riders dared to break away from the peloton and the pack made sure the trio never got too much of a gap.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka controlled the situation perfectly and with 22 km left to go, it all came back together again.

As the riders headed into the expected bunch, Lotto-NL Jumbo took the front and delivered their sprinter, Dylan Groenewegen to victory, while Boasson Hagen made podium and got additional bonus seconds for the GC.

He now leads with eight seconds down to Tosh Van der Sande (Lotto-Soudal) and 10 seconds to Simon Gerrans (Orica-Scott).
