Winning all of the two stages that make up Paris-Corrèze these days, the Norwegian Edvald Boasson-Hagen (Team Maxbo-Bianchi) has won the seventh edition of this French race. The first edition in 2001 was taken by none other than compatriot Thor Hushovd.

Boasson-Hagen won the first stage with a 12 second advantage and managed to keep it by also scoring stage two, which ended in a field sprint. The Norwegian, only 20 years of age, managed to stay ahead of Frenchman Steven Tromet (Roubaix Lille Metropole) and Australian Chris Sutton (Cofidis).

By winning both stages and the overall in front of Gerolsteiner Oscar Gatto the Norwegian confirmed that T-Mobile made the right decision to sign him.
