Hushovd Leads BMC Racing Team To Norway

11. agosto 2014

Defending Arctic Race of Norway champion Thor Hushovd will compete in his country's race for the final time when the BMC Racing Team begins the race Thursday.

Five-Rider Roster
Hushovd won two stages en route to the overall title last year in the inaugural edition of the event billed as the "northern-most professional cycling race in the world." The past world road champion announced in June that this will be his last season. Stagiaires Luke Davison and Loïc Vliegen join him on the BMC Racing Team's five-rider roster for the four-day race.
