Nothing broken for Hushovd

Wevelgem still in doubt

Cervelo TestTeam has quashed reports that Thor Hushovd has a broken wrist, revealing he was back training yesterday. The Norwegian rider will decide later today whether he starts tomorrow's Spring Classic Gent-Wevelgem.

"We are pleased to report that Thor Hushovd has nothing broken, contrary to media reports," said a team release. "Thor was back on the bike today for more than 1 hour and tomorrow he will decide together with sport director Jean-Paul van Poppel if he will be able to ride Gent-Wevelgem."

Hushovd, the team's best hope for Wevelgem glory, was involved in a finishing straight crash at the weekend's Ronde van Vlaanderen. A group of riders went down in the final 400 metres as the riders swung towards the barrier, leaving one without anywhere to go.
