Boasson Hagen celebrates his birthday early

Edvald Boasson Hagen

Edvald Boasson Hagen celebrated his 22nd birthday two days early on Friday, winning the Giro d'Italia stage to Chiavenna with another showing of his immense talent.

If you followed the 2008 Tour of Britain, you may remember how Boasson Hagen won three stages, leaving current Giro d?Italia race leader Danilo Di Luca punch drunk and out of the Italian world championships team with three long sprints.
