Ready Set Pedal

A charity bike ride has changed my life :)

Ryan Hesjedal withdraws from Tour de France

Yesterday I attended the Saturday Tour de Delta  Criteria held in Ladner (took some great pix – can’t wait to share them!).

There were two nasty crashes but luckily no one was seriously hurt. When the announcer was speaking about the crashes and who was taken out, he also mentioned that Canadian cycling whiz Ryan Hesjedal was forced to withdraw from the Tour de France earlier that day after suffering from injuries in a massive Tour de France cyclist pile up.

Awful news for Ryan & his team – and all his fans of course!

It turns out he he badly hurt his right hip and leg and the doctors determined that his injury would get worse if he continued to cycle the next day. So he’s flying home to refocus on the upcoming Olympics – which are fast approaching. Here’s wishing him (and all the other injured cyclists) a speedy recovery!!
