Cervélo Wins 2012 Giro d’Italia Under Ryder Hesjedal of Team Garmin-Barracuda
ervélo has made history again, helping Team Garmin-Barracuda’s Ryder Hesjedal become the first Canadian to win a Grand Tour with his victory in the 2012 Giro d’Italia.
“We are enormously proud of Ryder Hesjedal and all of Team Garmin-Barracuda,”
Hesjedal’s journey to victory began with a solid performance in the opening prologue, where he finished ahead of the other GC contenders aboard his Cervélo P5, which he rode again in the Team Time Trial, a stage Team Garmin-Barracuda won. When the race hit the high mountains of the Alps and Dolomites, Hesjedal turned to the Cervélo R5ca. On the final stage of the race, a time trial in Milan, Hesjedal once again rode the Cervélo P5, finishing 45 seconds ahead of his closest GC rival to claim the winner’s maglia rosa.
