Hushovd extends with Crédit Agricole

Norwegian rider Thor Hushovd has extended his contract with French team Crédit Agricole. On Wednesday, the 27 year-old sprinter inked a deal with his current squad for another three years. "The team has always believed in me," Hushovd said. "From the beginning when I was still young and also during more difficult times. That's why I'm glad to continue riding for them."

Hushovd won the Green jersey of the best sprinter in this year's Tour de France, where he was regularly supplied Norwegian food by his parents, who were following the race in their campervan.
