"Thor" written by the cycling star will be available this week and readers can expect sensational insight into the sport, including how drug abuse and political corruption within the sport's ruling body has wrecked the image of cycling worldwide.
A key controversy revealed is Hushovd's Hollywood visit to Lance Armstrong in 2011, and the American cycling ace's revelation he was using drugs.
Hushovd states he felt exploited by one of his most respected rivals, who the Norwegian claims said: “All of us did it."
Hushovd retired from cycling in September this year after competing in the Primus Classic Impanis-Van Petegem, won by his BMC Racing team-mate Greg Van Avermaet.
In a 15 year professional career, Hushovd has been troubled with illness and injury. He’s suffered recurring effects from mononucleosis since 2012 and missed the final race of the 2014 road race world championship due to a crash injury.
The cycling veteran won the World Road Race Championship in 2010 and three National Road Trial Championships (2002, 2004, 2005). He has also won 10 individual stages of the Tour de France throughout his career.
36-year-old Hushovd lives between Monaco and Norway with his wife and two children.
