Having a relatively poorer year last year 2012, Thor Hushovd registers his first win in 2013. The champion cyclist and an important member of BMC Racing Team from Norway, Thor Hushovd was slightly under pressure after having non-productive year in 2012, but he has been back on track once again. He went on a winning spree right from the beginning of the opening part or phase of the Tour du Haut Var in Norway. The cyclist has not been on the winning podium since September 2011. The cyclist was overjoyed again to cross the finishing line ahead of all his competitors in Tour du Haut Var on February 17, 2013.
The champion cyclist faced a few physical injuries since last few months which kept him away from the cycling arena. He also suffered from virus infection and muscle inflammation all during the last year. However, Thor Hushovd was pretty hopeful about making a successful comeback. He started his plan for a comeback in 2012 with a better performance when he finished at the 5th place in the 7th Phase of Paris-Nice. It was just a mark of the comeback procedures of this champion cyclist.
With this victory right in the very beginning of this year 2013, Thor Hushovd has expressed his happiness and satisfaction over his efforts of making a better performance later in this year which is yet to host many more tours later. His innermost satisfaction can be experienced by his words, “It has been really a big win after a frustrating and hard last year”. He expressed his course of progress en route to bigger victories which he expects to achieve later this year. The BMC Racing Team has been hopeful for better ranking for Thor Hushovd.
