Team Garmin adds new sponsor and Norwegian champ Thor Hushovd
Hushovd started racing at age 9 and went on to win the under-23 time trial world championship and the under-23 versions of Paris-Roubaix and Paris-Tours. He turned professional in 2000 and is considered one of the best sprinters, time trialists, and Classics riders in the world. Hushovd has twice finished in the top three of Paris-Roubaix and will focus on a strong Classics campaign with Garmin-Cervélo.
"We are incredibly excited to bring Thor to the team in 2011,” said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports. “One of our goals is to become stronger in the Classics, and adding a world-class rider like Thor will get us there. He’s an exceptionally talented rider and a great fit for our new team.”
“I’m going to focus my season on the Classics,” said Hushovd. “My biggest goal is to get one major Classics victory in 2011. I’ve come close over the past few years so I will build on that experience and hopefully, stand on the podium with my new team.”
The creation of the new team is still under development. More information, including official team rosters, will become available in the October timeframe.
