Sam Abt is my favorite cycling writer. He’s got a terrific eye for the ebb and flow of the Boucle. He pretty much nailed this one right:
Thor Hushovd, a 26-year-old Norwegian, has a big goal. Now in his fourth Tour de France and the winner of a daily stage in 2002, he says he has figured out how to gain the yellow jersey of the race’s leader.
Remember, this was before today’s stage.
