Hushovd's not happy at Garmin?

What is next?

This morning I tweeted a newspaper's interview with Hushovd. The newspaper is the local newspaper in the area where Hushovd origins from.

He says he had great exspectations participating in the spring classics in his rainbow jersey, and express some disappointment in being placed as a lead out man for Haussler and Farrar. He also says he is a part of a very strong team an add he's happy to do so (being lead-out man) some times but wish more freedom to go for own victories.

He says the team only managed to get some real control and leadership during Paris-Roubaix. Clear guidance, rules and not "we're riding for the one who has the best legs today" is the key to success, Hushovd says.

It seems that Hushovd's expectations in Garmin has not been meet. These are dangerous words, I know, and I hate add more fuel to the debate of what happened in the Garmin-Cervelo team during Paris-Roubaix, but it is quite obvious he's disappointed. Hushovd is very happy he managed to get the best legs he had during Paris-Roubaix, he adds he's happy for Johan Van Summeren, but feels he has few results despite his form this spring.

Hushovd now aims for Tour of California, The tour and the worlds in Copenhagen.

You can find the interview here.

Seen this picture of me?

Perhaps is this another example about the fact that too many strong riders on a team can be bad? How could this be solved?
