Completely not guitar related, but I just had to say something, Canadian Ryder Hesjedal just won the Giro d'Italia, first cycling grand tour victory for a Canadian. Good moment in Canadian cycling. :)

Sweet, that's a great feat!

Is he doing Tour the France too?

He may ride the tour, but the Olympics is right after. Big decision for those guys, which one do you aim for.

You get paid for winning the Tour...

Only the greatest won the Giro+Tour combo...

I think his actual choice is between trying the Tour , that he probably won't win but where he'll learn a lot for next time, or try the Olympics where he has a real opportunity to get a medal...

Anyway, this is a hard sport, and he is already in the upper class of it : we should hear about him in the coming years!
