After retiring earlier this year the cycling star Thor Hushovd has published a biography of his name and has named it “Thor”. The book is a revelation of many events and relationships some that have been part of controversies while some out of the blue.
The book shows how the image of cycling has been formed among people all around because of the corrupt governing body and the issues relating to doping and drug abuse.
The hottest and key revelation of the book has been about the relationship of the player with fellow Lance Armstrong and the doping charges against the same.
He has denied any close relationship with Lance and has said that they just talked when they were racing together. Thor has said that he did not expect that the person he respected despite of being a rival to be so casual about doping and saying that he was not the only one who did it. Thor said that although he wanted to refuse to what he was saying and tell him that he did not dope and there were many who played with the true spirit of game he did not. But he knew that telling him would not make a difference as he believed everyone doped.
Thor has also revealed in the book that the UCI or the governing body for cycling has hidden many positive results of doping just to prevent the sport, which is wrong. He states that the system was inappropriate and corrupted and that Lance’s example just approves it more.
Thor is 36 years old and lives with his wife and two children his career has been of injuries, illness, victories and defeats. He has written about it all in the book. The book provides you with an insight of the sport as well as his life.
