Paris - Norway's Thor Hushovd will compete in this year's Tour of Italy which starts in Denmark in May, his Denia cycling team confirmed on Friday.

The 2010 world champion has competed just once in the stage race five years ago and was declared winner of a stage after Alessandro Petacchi failed a drugs test.

Hushovd, 33, also plans to race the Paris-Nice in March followed by the Tirreno-Adriatico ahead of the first big classic of the season - the Milan-Sanremo on March 19.

The Giro starts on May 5 at Herning, Denmark.
