Picture This: The God Of Thunder Is Back

There is reason for Thor Hushovd to be looking so pleased with himself - after what can only be described as a horrific 2012 the God of Thunder has finally found himself on the top step of the podium once again, taking victory on stage 1 of the Tour du Haut Var. It's the Norwegians first win since 2011 and indeed his first with BMC which should provide some relief not only to himself but also team management, after struggling with illness for virtually the whole of the 2012 season. He's no spring chicken at 35 years old, but it's great to see him in form once again - 2012 missed his presence especially in the classics and the Tour de France. He's a strongman and a race-changer. He is certain to provide some entertainment in 2013 and the classics might not be so clear cut for Boonen this year with both Thor and Cancellara back on the war path...
