Canadien Dominique Rollin ...on!
Can a Canadian win a stage at the Vuelta?
The chances are getting better...
After today's Stage 5 to Vinaros, Spain was perfectly flat for the sprinters, like Dominique Rollin (Cervelo TT). He's one of four Canadians at the Vuelta and he thundered to a great 11th finish just behind double stage victor, André Greipel (Columbia). He now sits in 34th overall.
Rollin, 'The Horse from the North', is back from a virus that knocked him out for two months. He's back aiming for a win in the sprints. It's his first Grand Tour. And, after the disastrous crash on Stage 4, he's licking his wounds and savy enough to take on the best sprinter's.
The other three Canuck's are from Garmin: Hesjedal, Tuft & Meier all very capable of stage greatness. I can feel it!
