He is the only cyclist on the team who has a twin, whose name is Øystein: the brothers are the same height, but they aren’t identical twins.
Lots of people usually ask about the correct composition of his name: Laengen is his surname, Vegard is his name and Stake is his mother’s surname, an element that sometimes completes a person’s entire name in Norway.
He’s gone from Norway to Nice, where he now lives and trains in a much milder climate than Scandinavia.
