Silken Laumann, Steve Nash and Simon Whitfield have brought benefits to Victoria, so this is a major win for us.

There are claims that many riders on past tours participated, so if everyone is trying it why don't they just legalize doping and may the best men at it win? Yikes!
I plan on watching the Tour de France live again in a few weeks, and hopefully it will be drug free.

A confident Hesjedal had talked up his chances of victory in the three-week race having triumphed at the Giro in May but the mass crash 30-km from the finish in Metz could lead to his withdrawal.
He was well placed in ninth overall - 18 seconds behind yellow jersey wearer Fabian Cancellara - before the pileup on the flat stage which was won by rising starlet Peter Sagan.
The 31-year-old Hesjedal is now down in 108th place with no hope of recovering the ground even if his wounds heal quickly.

After just three days, the overall contenders have already begun to clash and are already in the top ten overall. Paolini leads Wiggins by 17 seconds, with Rigoberto Uran (Team Sky) third at the same time. Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) is fifth at 31 seconds with Hesjedal seventh at 34 seconds.
The organisers of the new Tour of Alberta have announced that Garmin-Sharp will compete in the race and intend to bring Canadian star Ryder Hesjedal to headline the team for the race, which takes place on September 3-8 and runs from Edmonton to Calgary.
