tribute tuesdays: thor hushovd

This week, we look into Norwegian God of the Thunder Sprints, Thor Hushovd. If you have yet to hear the name, Thor was the sprint champion from the Tour de France last year, and I think that he will be again this summer. Now, I'm more of a climber, but let's face it, sprints are exciting & Hushovd has all the power of a Mark Cavendish without all the hype or shitty attitude. Hushovd also beat Cavendish by a considerable margin at Milan-San Remo this past week, but Cavendish has been plagued by inquiry since the start of this Classics' season. Its a shame that we can't talk about either rider without mentioning the other, and its also a shame that Tyler Farrar doesn't get brought up so often. I promise that I'll post something track-specific next week, and get off of this road tip:
