Meanwhile in Norway Edvald Boasson Hagen won the Glava Tour.

The first edition of a national tour for this country saw a home win for the big crowds with some lively racing during the stages.

Some good photos at http://www.procycling.no.

Snow problem? It’s no problem.
Photo from last year shows Boasson-Hagen copes with cold weather.
But it helps to have a CX bike with studded tyres. Note the bottle in the pocket on his back, this might not freeze, unlike the one on his frame.
