Edvald Boasson Hagen wins, Tirreno-Adriatico 2010, stage seven

Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen struck today in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, winning the final stage at Tirreno-Adriatico. His sprint win ahead of Alessandro Petacchi and versatility marks him as a favourite for Milan-San Remo in four days time.

"Today was a good sprint, but San Remo is a lot longer, so it will be tough," said Norwegian Boasson Hagen. "My form is good, but it is not really perfect. I hope, with some rest I will be good."
