Thor Hushovd isn’t only the defending green jersey at the Tour de France, he’s quickly shaping up as the likely winner for this year’s points jersey. Just a few stages in and the Norwegian national champion has already picked up a handy lead in the classification, helped by his impressive victory on Stage 3.
Hushovd respected the go-slow at the end of stage two, but he was furious it removed a chance for him to secure precious points in the green jersey race. A victory in the classification this year would give Hushovd his fourth green jersey at the Tour de France.
Yet, it’s a long road to Paris and anything could happen before then.
