Edvald Boasson who has had a great start this season with three wins (two stages at the Tour of Oman and one at the Tour of Qatar), hopes to finally have a good spring campaign. The Dimension Data rider wants to be with the best riders in Paris-Roubaix. He is currently doing Tirreno-Adriatico where he is improving his physical condition for the next.

 

"I hope to be up there for the classics. I had injuries before, but I’ve been up there before. I won Gent-Wevelgem, but that is already starting to be many years ago! Hopefully, I can be good now, this year, and I hope to have no crashes or injuries that set me back", he explained to Velonews. "The goal is to do well in all of them, but my dream is to win Paris-Roubaix. Flanders can also suit me well, we will see."

 

Dimension Data general manager Brian Smith is confident in his Norwegian rider, who won Gent-Wevelgem in 2009:

 

"He’s quiet and reserved, but when you get him in a race he can be an anima. It’s that Viking mentality. Eddy saw what Thor Hushovd did in Roubaix and he thought, ‘If he can almost win it, then I can do it.'

 

"Why now? Look at the results he had this year. When you see what he did in the first road stage here in Tirreno-Adriatico [second behind Zdenek Stybar] … When you look at the classics, you look at the Tour of Qatar. Eddy was there. He should’ve won the overall."
