It was nice to see Twitter abuzz with Canadian pride for cyclist Ryder Hesjedal who won the Giro d'Italia this weekend. This accomplishment was especially prominent because Ryder became the first Canadian to win one of cycling’s three Grand Tour events. Even our Prime Minister offered his congratulations!
"We thank Mr. Hesjedal for this defining moment in Canadian sport and wish him well in his upcoming races, including this year's Tour de France."
Cheer him on this summer on Twitter.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!— Ryder Hesjedal(@ryder_hesjedal) May 27, 2012
