Contrary to recent reports in the media, Cervélo TestTeam rider Thor Hushovd is planning to return to the Tour de France next year to defend the green jersey he won in this year’s race. In the past few days some misunderstandings have arisen regarding Thor Hushovd’s goals for 2010, but the Norwegian rider intends to participate. Hushovd and Cervélo TestTeam have said that they consider defending that jersey one of their major goals for 2010.

"Winning the green jersey was my major objective for 2009, and 2010 will be no different," said Hushovd.

"I love the Tour de France. Given the level of competition for the green, it will no doubt be a great fight in 2010 and I am looking forward to it. I am going to change some things in my program next year, to be also in top form at the Worlds, since next year’s race suits me better than this year’s course in Mendrisio.”

As defending green jersey winner, Hushovd will be present on October 14 at the presentation of the 2010 Tour de France.
