De Gendt said he's been working a lot on climbing and riding at altitude.

The time trial snakes all over the place, and there's probably going to be some old road in various places. Hopefully the Giro won't be decided by some mechanical failure.

Where are all the Canadian flags roadside?

No kidding, I didn't notice a single one today.

De Gendt said he's been working a lot on climbing and riding at altitude.

He's "ridden this climb 20 or 30 times in training,", so he would have had a pretty good idea of what he could do. Impressive ride, for sure.

So proud to be a cyclist right now. For me, this is so much bigger than anything. Canucks winning the cup couldn't top Ryder winning a grand tour. First Canadian ever!!!
