Winners Are Grinners! Go Gerro!
I know what you’re thinking and thank you, but I can’t take all the credit for Gerro’s stage win today. Gerro did quite a bit of training throughout his career to get to where he’s at. CyclingTips has only “guided” him with the some of the finer details of bike racing, victory salutes, and life tips. Gerro did most of the hard work and I can’t claim all the glory. It’s the least I can do to repay him for all the plugs he’s been giving CyclingTips on facebook and twitter. Well done Gerro. Love your work.
Notice Gerro’s victory salute refinements as he gets more accustomed to the glory of Grand Tour wins:
Watching this video of Gerro’s epic win sent shivers down my spine. If you listen to Matt Keenan you can hear him biting his tongue trying not to call it with a bias towards Gerro. Exciting stuff! The only mixed feelings I carry is that Ryder Hesjedal missed out on Canada’s first Grand Tour stage win since 1988 when Steve Baur won stage 10 at the TdF. Ahh, Ryder will get his day. No one can pronounce his last name anyway. It also would have been interesting to see what antics Vino would have come up with if he had claimed victory. What a circus that would have been. In any case, I have a CyclingTips jersey with Gerro’s face embroidered all over the front and back going into production as we speak.
I’m elated that Gerro got his third Grand Tour victory and congratulate him. I’m officially declaring this site as Simon Gerrans’ Unofficial Fan Club. Is there anything stopping this guy!!!???
