Ryder Hesjedal wins Giro d’Italia

In Bikes, Canada, From Coast to Coast to Coast, The CBC, West Coast on May 27, 2012 at 12:13

Just a tad…

“Hesjedal, who overcame a 31 second deficit on Sunday to win by 16, is now a star in the hugely difficult, too-often controversial world of professional cycling where for many years the winners were regularly determined by who had the best chemist…  But he represents a country that, but for the big cycling fans, finds itself asking “Who is this guy?”… Hesh-JAH-dall (keep practising)…” via CBC Sports

It really makes you wonder how Canadian athletes in general (beyond the major leagues) win without much of any backing from the Canadian government.  Tour du France is next, because Hesjedal will probably be over looked from the Canadian Olympic Team.
