Boasson Hagen's second stage win puts Norway joint top

Edvald Boasson Hagen wins, Tour de France 2011 stage 17

This year's Tour has had an international feel to it with eight different nations winning stages so far. Topping the wins by nation are two countries you may not expect to see up there. Great Britain and Norway.

Mark Cavendish has taken all four wins for the Brits as his sprinting dominance continues, while Thor Hushovd and Edvald Boasson Hagen have taken Norway's. Add to that tally Hushovd's week in yellow and the Scandinavian nation has had a phenomenal race so far.
