After five seasons at Team Sky, Edvald Boasson Hagen has now begun a new chapter at team MTN-Qhubeka. The Norwegian has changed his training regime as well as changing teams, and put on weight under the guidance of his former trainer as he aims for the 2015 Spring Classics.

When asked how many kilograms he has put on, the quiet 27 year old said: "Quite a lot. A few. Hopefully it's more power. We'll see. I'm not a climber anyway. I've tried to be more skinny and it doesn't really work. Now, I'll try to have more muscles."
