Ryder Rides Into History!

May 12, 2012

Canadian cyclist Ryder Hesjdal finished ahead of his major rivals in today’s Stage 7 of the Giro D’Italia — the first hilly stage this year — and thus became the first ever Canadian to wear the race leader’s maglia rose — pink shirt.

With the first of three weeks racing just about done, Hesjdal has a genuine shot at winning the Giro, but my money is still on Roman Kreuziger who is 35 seconds behind on General Classification.  Long way to go, though.
