2011 Tour De France Results: Edvald Boasson Hagen Wins 2nd Stage

For the second time in the 2011 Tour de France, Edvald Boasson Hagen captured a stage victory when he crossed the finish line at Pinerolo in the Italian Alps. He completed Stage 17 at 4:18:00, 40 seconds ahead of Bauke Mollema and 50 seconds of Sandy Casar. Alberto Contador, Andy and Frank Schleck and Cadel Evans all came in at the same time, 4:26 behind Hagen.

Thomas Voeckler, race leader, lost seconds on his overall lead with his poor descent. In the last hundred meters or so, Voeckler wound up going off the road, through an open gate and into a yard. He did recover and finished 4:53 behind Hagen. American Tom Danielson also crossed the finish line at the same time as Voeckler.

Sylvain Chavanel took the first three climbs of the day, but Ruben Perez Moreno and Hagen split the final two. Chavanel did finish second and fourth in those ones.
