World Champion delays season start until Tour of Oman
It was impossible for the Norwegian to ride today, according to his coach.
“It's nothing serious, but he doesn't have any strength. When it's like that, ride the race would only make things worse," Atle Kvålsvoll told Norwegian broadcaster TV 2 Sport.
“This won't set him back and will not affect preparations for the rest of the spring season," said Kvålsvoll. “Thor has been trained very well since the New Year and is on track.”
“Now Thor will take it easy this weekend and start with light training again next week. Now it is important to replenish his body again and we won't take any chances," he said.
Hushovd will now open his season at the Tour of Oman (February 15 – 20) as his first step towards the Spring Classics.
