Edvald Bosson-Hagen 2017 season
2017 has been another successful year so far for the man that is known as the Boss. An overall victory at both the Tour des Fjords and the Tour of Norway have shown that Boasson-Hagen is still bossing it.
A third successful defence of his national time trial title marked a quality build up to the Tour de France where he intended to help Mark Cavendish become the most prolific stage winner in the race’s history, as well as seeking stage wins. However, when Cavendish crashed out and Peter Sagan was disqualified, that role was disbanded and he was left to seek stage wins alone.
Edvald Bosson-Hagen: career so far
After dropping down to the Pro Continental level in 2015, it seemed to be exactly what Edvald Boasson Hagen needed to find his mojo after a frustrating final season with Team Sky.
With Dimension Data in the WorldTour in 2016, he continued his solid presence at the highest level of racing. With a successful defence of his national titles as well as the points jersey at the Critérium du Dauphiné and several top tens.
