In this 6th installment of Rise Edvald Boasson Hagen gives us an insight into everything that matters when challenging the clock. The reigning Norwegian time trial champion is an outspoken specialist in this discipline and knows about all the facets of it. But see for yourself..
Marcel Kittel (Etixx-Quickstep) won a shortened stage 1 of the Tour de Romandie, beating Niccolo Bonifazio (Trek-Segafredo) and Michael Albasini (Orica-Greenedge) in the sprint finish. Originally today’s opening stage was scheduled to be 169km from La Chaux-de-Fonds but due to some early morning snowfall the orgnisers were forced to cut out the opening 60km of the stage which also meant the cat 2 Col des Etroits would also be bypassed. With it being such a short stage at only 109km now, everyone knew it would be fast from the gun. As a result, only 1 rider was able to get away early on and it.
The Tour de Romandie got off to a wet and icy start as riders took on the 3.9km prologue in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Cameron Meyer was our best placed rider on the day and Stiehl Photography was roadside to capture these cool action shots..
