Eks World Champion Thor Hushovd has never trained so hard before a cycling season. Now the foundation is laid for success in Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix.
In the Norwegian newspaper VG Sports (29th of December) Thor Hushovd and his three year old daughter speaks out in a personal interview and explains how he warms up to this year's cycling season.
- I've never trained so much and so hard as I have done so far in December, ever. This is the time when i lay the foundation for success in Paris-Roubaix in April and the Tour de France, says Hushovd to VG.
The ex-world champion says it is especially important to practice at home and spend time with his family at Christmas.
- She is often with me during strength training or sitting on the spinning bike. It gives an extra motivation boost, Hushovd says.
In addition to strength training with the Redcord Trainer, an average workout for Hushovd consists of about 40 kilometers on an icy winter roads and an hour of strength cycling on the spinning bike indoors.
Redcord is cheering for Thor Hushovd during the 2012 cycling season.
