Norwegian cyclist Thor Hushovd, a stage winner on 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 told Norwegian agency NTB.

"I wanted to compete, but like I explained to the team doctor, I need rest," added the sprinter with the Credit Agricole team.
