Hushovd leads Crédit Agricole

Norwegian Thor Hushovd will be the captain of the Crédit Agricole team for Saturday's Milan-San Remo, and is hoping for a good result in the classic. However, his team director Roger Legeay was quoted by L'Equipe as saying, "He was delayed by the 'flu for about 15 days. He risks being a little behind in comparison with the best ones in San Remo."

Hushovd will have Kiwi sprinter Julian Dean at his disposal as a leadout man, as well as Laszlo Bodrogi, Sébastien Hinault, Christophe Le Mevel, Andrey Kashechkin and Bradley Wiggins. Geoffroy Lequatre is in doubt after abandoning Tirreno-Adriatico due to a sore ankle.
