Team Garmin: Ryder rides into Paris in 7th, Julian jets through final sprints
Bookending those remarkable performances were two magnificent sprints by Garmin veteran Julian Dean, taking second on Friday and third place today on the Champs Élysées. So even though Team Garmin lost its star power in Vande Velde and sprinters Tyler Farrar and Robbie Hunter to broken bones, the team won over the hearts of fans around the world (especially in Canada, where Ryder famously carries the “Weight of a Nation”) and journalists who appreciate an underdog stepping up. As longtime VeloNews sportswriter John Wilcockson said on Twitter to @ryder_hesjedal:“You deserve it Ryder. What a phenomenal Tour! You made the race for a bunch of us!” For more stories, photos, links and reactions to another amazing grand tour, check out Jake’s Twitter lists for Team Garmin cyclists and top cycling media, and read the race recaps and rider diaries from the cyclists themselves. And for those who can’t get enough to feed their cycling fix, we have a Garmin blogger embarking on something a little less competitive this week – RAGBRAI, the annual ride across Iowa. We’ll keep you posted with plenty of photos and funnelcakes.
