Thor Hushovd, the cyclist of Norway in top for several years is not seeing the World Championship as crowning glory which is up coming. A mighty fall has led him to think over his cycling in the coming events. Instead he has his sight set on local events.
In an interview for the magazine he stated that may be he would think of cycling in Birken. Birkebeiner annual race of cycling draws participation from huge numbers all over the world. Though he had announced his retirement to June, the fall came as shock. The cycling race which is going to take place in Spain this month he had his eyes set on that. Since he had won the Australian championship in 2010 he thought that he had every opportunity to clinch the title again. His career of cycling would have ended with a high note unless for the fall.
In the Tour de Poitou- Charentes n France he suffered due to a mighty fall. It was his hip hitting the asphalt and then the wounds and scars which led Atle Kvalsvoll, his coach to state that all his chances of playing in a vital lap on Sunday had been lost. He does not even have the required training to be able to take part in the World Championship. He does not play only for the sake of it rather he plays so that he can win the game. It has come as a major setback for him.
His last race was in Norway and now he is looking at the local races in his hometown itself. He wants to go on cycling and finish his autobiography which is going to come in October. He however, claims that he is not heartbroken or crestfallen since his career was a shining one.
