Edvald Boasson Hagen, who is only 19 years-old, but who already has three stage wins in the Tour de l'Avenir and a fifth place in the individual time trial at the Junior World Championships 2006 to his name, is being courted by several ProTour teams. As he told CyclingWorld.dk, he has "offers from T-Mobile, CSC, and Credit Agricole, amongst others, and right now I'm thinking about where I'm going next year."
Boasson Hagen played an important role in this weekend's two Danish Classics: The GLS Express Grand Prix in Herning and Colliers Classic, where he was in breaks in both races and finished eighth and ninth respectively. In yesterday's GP Herning, he was in the decisive group with Kurt Asle Arvesen who went on to win the race, but he took a wrong turn in the finale.
"That was really stupid of course, but I wasn't thinking straight, because amongst other things, I hadn't drunk enough. Apart from that, I'm really satisfied with my performance," said Boasson Hagen, who is currently racing for Norwegian Continental squad Team Maxbo Bianchi.
