Thunder God strikes the Arctic Race by lightning

Race ambassador and race favorite Thor Hushovd was true to his words as he also won the event of his dreams in the far north of Norway. His successful final sprint awarded him the time bonus he needed in order to pass Kenny van Hummel in the overall classification. It was not just another victory but an absolute triumph for the «Thunder God» [Thor in Scandinavian mythology] who overcame health troubles and difficult time to come back as a great champion despite missing out on the Tour de France this year.
