Thor Hushovd – pretty boy with pretty wife?

6 Jul

Every so often it’s rather good fun to look at the search terms people have used to find my blog. (I generally have good faith in Google, but I must wonder what possessed it to direct the searcher who typed in ‘sex in Pulloxhill’ here??? And if you have just found me by searching for just that, I must disappoint you. You can stop reading right now.)

Lately, it is Thor Hushovd who is dominating my stats; much as he is putting in some good work in the Tour, he is also working hard for my blog. Specifically, it’s the search term ‘Thor Hushovd wife’, which has accounted for a whopping 50% of my search-based traffic these last few days.

So, if you just found me by searching for ‘Thor Hushovd wife’, I would like to know: are you looking for photos of said wife, or were you hoping there isn’t one? Just wondering…

    More than one person has arrived with us after googling “Andy Schleck girlfriend”. I’m not sure how that happened, or if they got what they were looking for.

    “cadel evans (hobbit or muppet or frog)” brought someone in this week too.

    Yep, after today’s win, I looked to see if my new boyfriend Thor was married. And if so, was she pretty…haha. Will follow the blog now though. Love watching the Tour and love learning more about each of the cyclists.

    Thanks for the comments, ladies!
    Thor’s my favourite too, though as I have a husband, I should probably not be interested in the wife issue;)

    Hee hee! I Googled Thor Hushovd and wife! Secretly I was hoping he didn’t have one but knew that was probably not the case. So then, I wanted to see a picture. I am sure she is a Norse beauty!!! Love your blog!

    Thanks, Mary Ellen!
    To satisfy your curiosity I’ve dug up this Norwegian article, which has a picture:

    Thor’s one of my fave’s too as he’s a member of that very select sub-set “Riders who weigh more than me”. Looking forward to seeing him ride this coming week end in San Sebastian.

    I joked that Norway was closed as everyone was down in the Alps. In view of recent horrific and tragic events, that unfortunately obviously wasn’t the case.

    Thought today’s minute silence organised by Thor, patron of the peloton, was a nice touch.

    Thanks, Sheree.

    My interest in the Tour waned very quickly on Friday, sadly, but it was lovely to hear of Thor’s actions. He is both a great cyclist and a great role model, I think.
