Edvald Boasson Hagen (Columbia-Highroad) improved on his second place yesterday by winning today's rain-soaked stage seven of the 2009 Giro d'Italia.

The Norwegian Ghent-Wevelgem winner gave a textbook display of late acceleration to the line in Chiavenna leaving his four breakaway companions standing in the puddles.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
