Monday Awesome: Ryder Hesjedal wins Giro d’Italia

This is the first time a Canadian has won a grand tour, so I bet there are lots of Canadians celebrating. He snatched the lead on the final stage of the race – the time trial. That’s embodiment of the phrase ‘go hard or go home (empty-handed)’.

Here’s a picture of him in his new pink jersey, with his trophy (photo from ABC news):
