Edvald Boasson Hagen was victorious on Stage 19 of the 2017 Tour de France after the Dimension Data rider’s late solo break gave him the win on Friday.

The Norwegian prevailed in very warm conditions to become a three-time stage winner, with Team Sky’s Chris Froome holding on to the yellow jersey.

The sprinters had been expected to dominate the race, but with an all-important time trail in Marseille to follow, the focus remained on a conservative strategy.

The race took place over 222.5 kilometres between Embrun and Salon-de-Provence, representing the longest stage of this year’s Tour de France.
