Canada salutes their hero of the Giro d’Italia!
Sad to say, but the 2012 Giro d’Italia is over, wasn’t it great from the first pedal stroke to the last? Canada (and Garmin) has its first Grand Tour winner. Ryder Hesjedal had more than one battle to overcome, but apart from one scare on stage 20, he had it all under control.

The Other Side Of Paradise
Driving around Oahu island is really interesting. On the east side there are snorkeling spots, beaches and small towns. On the north shore, there are beautiful beaches and big waves – surfing paradise.

A Talk with Felice Gimondi, “Il Campionissimo”
By Valeria Paoletti
Setting up an appointment with the great Felice Gimondi, Italy’s last Campionissimo (champion of champions), was not very easy. This very distinguished man was the last truly complete Italian rider capable of winning all the important races, which at that time required beating Eddy Merckx. Today he works for Bianchi and runs an insurance business. His work for Bianchi involves traveling not only all over Italy, but also out of his home country, such is his international prestige.

It has definitely been a very difficult two years for me and my family. We still talk about her and her life at our family gathering. Here is what I wrote about her last year:
