Ryder Hesjedal becomes the first ever Canadian winner of the Giro d’Italia
“The first day I pulled on the pink jersey I knew I was good and had accomplished something great,” he explained. “That made me go even harder. Getting compliments from my rivals gave me even more confidence. Hat’s off to them, they’re all great champions but once we were in the third week and I was doing the rides I was doing, I knew it was possible."
It would be as if the Italian hockey team came to Canada and beat our hockey team in over-time in game seven!
The only bad thing...pink kinda clashes with red!
