Thor brings out the big hammer

Thor Hushovd wins Norwegian National Road Championships
27-Jun-2010: Thor Hushovd has won the Norwegian National Road Championships. There was break of nine, then with 60 km Hushovd and Edvald Boasson Hagen made the counter attack and took the 9 riders one by one. Hushovd dropped Boasson Hagen with 30 km to go, and took the last rider Christer Rake (Joker Bianchi), in the final and won the race solo.

“I am really happy with this. It is my first win of what has been a very difficult season so far. I actually forgot how nice it is to win,” said Hushovd after the race. “I’ve had to wait some years before winning this race again, and now I look forward to wearing the national jersey in the Tour de France.” 

1. Thor Hushovd - Cervélo TestTeam 5.09.00 
2. Christer Rake - Joker Bianchi + 0.04 
3. Roy Hegreberg -  Sparebanken Vest – Ridley + 0.39

Great news. Really pleased for Cervelo, they've had a great weekend across the mens & womens Teams. Might not be much White & Grey on show over the next couple of weeks. I think that with Thor winning the National jersey is a great indicator for the Green Jersey come July.
