A day for Ryder Hesjedal to make history

I know it's also a big day for our friends down south, but across the pond it is the first day of the Tour de France (in Monaco, actually, today), and broadcast on the OLN channel. Again this year, this guy, Ryder Hesjedal of Victoria, is the lone Canadian on the tour. He had a terrific tour last year, not that Canadian sports journalists pay any heed. This is his website.

Update, July 6: Both CB sports and The Globe and Mail have begun incorporating Canadian Press coverage of Hesjedal into the stories they reprint from Associated Press.
