Lene Byberg (Nor) member of Team Bikin'Cyprus, had a successful short visit to the Tour l'Hexagonal in France by winning the first two stages of the eight-stage race. She won the 48-kilometer cross-country race in the outskirts of Paris, beating Cecile Rode (Fra) by five minutes, and the stage-two time trial, gaining five seconds on Hélène Marcouyre (Fra).

She didn't defend the leader's jersey though, pulling out of the event after two stages because she wants to keep her focus on the next World Cup event at Mont Sainte Anne, Canada, where she will defend her UCI ranking of seventh.
