Sorry if I'm re-threading old ground, but, for the first time, there has been a Canadian winner of the 3-week cycling stage race, the Giro d'Italia. Although less prestigious and famous than its French counterpart, the Giro is notorious for embracing the steepest climbs, the most unpaved roads and generally inflicting insane demands on its participants, so chapeau to Ryder Hesjedal.
The Ogre does what ogres can,
Deeds quite impossible for Man,
But one prize is beyond his reach:
The Ogre cannot master speech.
