After a tough start to the cycling season Cerv?lo TestTeam’s Thor Hushovd has decided to skip the 2009 Giro dItalia and dedicate some time to resting and training to allow him to shape slowly and be 100% for the 2009 Tour de France.
Hushovds Spring Season has started well including winning Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, a stage at the Tour of California, and finishing third in both the 2009 Paris-Roubaix and the 2009 Milano-San Remo.
Hushovd will ride the Volta a Catalunya and the Tour de Swiss with his main lead out man, Brett Lancaster so they can train and work together on his leadout.
