"Once I start seeing my name on the list of other riders who have accomplished this,
it's pretty amazing."
Congratulations to Canada's newest hero: Ryder Hesjedal, the first Canadian to win a grand tour... the Giro d'italia!
He's eclipsed Steve Bauer's fourth-place finish in the 1988 Tour, and he is ushering a new era in Canadian cycling...
"Canadian cycling is at the highest level it's ever been and this will only help."
Carolle and I proudly witnessed this wonderful achievement this morning... and, in a way, our country shifted for the better!
O Canada, O Ryder!
