Image of the Day: Edvald Boasson Hagen

This is a great picture

I just came across this fantastic picture I took of Edvald Boasson Hagen at the 2012 Tour de France last July in Annonay, France.

Some riders just make me smile - Edvald is certainly one of them. He is also the current Norwegian Road Race Champion.

I am collecting some images of riders I took last year who will be riding in the Giro or in the Tour of California (for a post coming tomorrow ...).  Edvald is not on the list of riders racing the Giro for Team Sky this year. Shucks, looks like we'll have to wait until the Tour de France.

Read Team Sky's Race Guide Giro d'Italia (excellent) to see who they will bring to the Giro under team captain Bradley Wiggins.

And check out the new Team Sky Pinarello time trial bike they will launch this weekend. Pinarello launch the Bolide

A bolide is a fireball, could be related to a meteor, which means this bike is FAST. Read more about the Pinarello Bolide
