Norwegian sprinter Thor Hushovd, a stage winner in last month’s Tour de France, on Friday pulled out of the Beijing Olympics, citing health problems.
“It’s stupid and very bitter but I have to think of my health. I struggled on the Tour de France and I was sick,” the 30-year-old Hushovd, who races for Crédit Agricole, told Norwegian agency NTB. “I wanted to compete, but like I explained to the team doctor, I need rest.”
