Splendid win by Hushovd in the Norwegian championships today. Counterattacked from a 4 man break* with 20 km to go and held off the charge with a second to spare. Kristoff 2nd, EBH 3rd, Gabba 4th and Nordhaug 5th in the main field sprint.
Gold in the TTT, silver in the TT and gold in the RR is not a bad week at all, BMC.

Hitec clean sweeped the women's podium, Cecilie Gotaas Johnsen taking the jersey.


*Actually when the four man chasing group he was policing caught the two leaders Kristoff and Holst Enger.

as he should! Sure it's probably not the deepest field going around but it's still such a solid bunch of riders to beat for the win :thumbup:

another 'me too' TT bike...

hardly.

it doesnt look too different/looks like a development from the walser based tt frame that they have been offering for some time now. that was out long before the current generation of tt frames.

I saw a photo of the frontal profile, it doesnt look so 'me too' in that perspective. It has an integrated front brake a la BMC in the same shape as the fork. Looks narrow like the Walser. One of the issues with the Walser design was due to its narrow profile, it was heavy because the tubes had to be overbuilt.

Thought this would be a nice finish for Sondre Enger your new rising star :smartass: :thumbup:

Kristoff has become a super solid rider btw, making honor to his olympic medal :thumbup:

Still nice to see Hushovd winning in front of the younger "army" :beerchug:

Kristoff has been very consistent in the last couple of seasons.

Good to see Hushovd get up for the win, returning back to his old self :)

Had to say I'm glad to see Millar and Cav work together to thwart Sky (not the first time they've allied themselves, see Commonwealth Games). I can't help but think that they should've raced the Olympic RR w/ their heads (both being very smart riders on the road) rather than 'by the plan.' What a pity.

Sondre Holst Enger, who rides for "Hushovd's" Plussbank-BMC conti team was in a two man break with Kristoff. Hushovd countered solo when they were reeled in by EBH, who then understandably couldn't follow Hushovd who had been sitting in the wheels.

I agree, the finish suited the young and media friendly Holst Enger, but he had burned most of his matches for his boss earlier in the race.

It was a great race to watch. Fast, attacking, and the classic will he, won't he last half hour. And in Grimstad to boot! Dag Otto Lauritzen was over himself.

It's a trailer for a cyclist/driver awareness campaign.
