Stinking Fish Tour turns year-round Charla Huber News staff

When artist Bert Lambier took his first Stinking Fish self-guided studio tour he felt rushed trying to visit all the studios within a few days. In a trial run, this year the tour will go all year long instead of limiting visitors to 10 days. “We felt it was so hectic,” said Judi Dyelle, tour co-ordinator and artist. “Sometimes there would be 50 people in the studio and people want to ask questions.”
The tour was held once in the summer and again in the winter. With the new annual format more artists are signed up to be a part of the tour, Dyelle said. It’s the first year in the tour for Lambier who admits he would have participated if it was a 10-day tour, but he’s excited for the new format. “I think it’s a great idea,” said the Metchosin welder. “Now people can come when they have time. People can call ahead and book two or three artists to go see.” Plus, he points out, artists can work together.
“When they leave my shop I can call the next artist and let them know they are on their way,” Lambier explained. In his shop, sparks and epics of metal tend to fly, so the artist prefers a heads up to prepare for a visit. Lambier learned his trade at Camosun College where most of his classmates where not seeking the skill for artwork. Please see: Steel worker on tour for first time, Page A12

Riding for the end
Man cycles the Island for MS awareness, funds Christine van Reeuwyk News staff
David Cox will take a months-long twowheeled journey cycling the Island tip to tip to tip in a bid to end Multiple Sclerosis. The 68-year-old will ride to Port Hardy and back for the endMS cause and embarked from his Triangle Mountain home on his third unsupported Van Isle End to End to endMS early this morning. “I get to start off going down a hill,” the Colwood man said indicating his steep driveway. “Really, the idea was to start at home and end at home.” At first the then-Torontonian was just “looking for a good organized bike ride”. The next year it got personal, his niece was diagnosed with MS. Within six months she was confined to a wheelchair. Cox organized a dynamic team of RBC fundraising riders and now is in his 19th year of MS bike rides. “I’m going to raise money – that’s gravy,” he said. “It keeps the whole concept that this disease does not have a cure and make people aware of it.” When he retired to B.C. in 2005, Cox continued to ride fundraisers and raise awareness, spending three years on the board for the MS Society’s South and Central Island chapter. In 2009, he started the Island-wide ride that became bi-annual after an injury in 2010. The idea is to put his own “blood, sweat and tears” into the effort. “There’s a lot of competing charities out there looking for dollars,” he explained. So Cox packed his 40 pounds of baggage on his 28-pound bike and headed out of Colwood to make his way to Port Hardy and back to Shawnigan in time for the Cowichan Valley Grape Escape MS ride that starts July 6. “My objective is to always get back for that,” he said. “I go to the (Shawnigan Lake) school, set up my tent and I’m ready to go in the morning.” He’ll do the two-day tour then head home to the West Shore. The primary goal is awareness and respect, he feels is lacking in dayto-day life, illustrated by a visit to his niece Leslie a few months ago. “I was astounded at the rudeness of people who made her stop, made her get out of the way,” he said of his wheelchair-bound relative. “It’s important for people to recognize

The permit allows the couple to operate a teahouse restaurant at their home on Rocky Point Road for three years with the option to renew the permit
Man arrested selling pot near elementary school
A 21-year-old Langford man was arrested by the West Shore RCMP Street Crime Unit, June 18 at 1 p.m. The undercover officers called the Dial-a-Dope operator and were told to meet the dealer about one block from Millstream elementary school. He was arrested with 106 grams of marijuana. He was released on a promise to appear and RCMP are requesting charges of possession with intent to traffic. No children at the school were outside during the arrest.
Double check rental ads say West Shore RCMP
West Shore RCMP has been alerted to a potential new online fraud in the region. RCMP say in two cases original legitimate online ads for suite or home rentals were duplicated with a lower price and alternate contact information. “Obviously people are going to call the cheaper price. We are asking people to be mindful,” said Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz. She added it’s important for new tenants to not pay a damage deposit without receiving paperwork in return. The RCMP also encourages landlords to monitor ads posted online.

one time. Now called Glenrosa Farm, the Kalima teahouse operated on the site in the 1970s and ’80s prior to incorporation. The Hammonds can operate a 66-seat restaurant and can run special events including weddings up to 66 seats. They can apply for a special event permit to operate up to 96 seats for an event. The permit limits them to 12 special event applications a year and they must give council two
weeks advanced notice when applying. The garden area can be used during special events. “They will have to seize all music by eleven and shut down by midnight,” said Mayor John Ranns. Only Coun. Bob Gramigna did not support the permit. Ranns said nearly 100 people showed support of the proposal and he heard from only two or three people who opposed. “If residents don’t want
something they don’t get it. It has to go both ways and if the residents say they want something then they get it,” Ranns said. “I kept asking if Metchosin was mature enough to consider something like this. And it would seem so.” The farm is near Pedder Bay Marina, the Galloping Goose and Matheson Lake Park. Currently the Hammonds operate a small bed and breakfast. firstname.lastname@example.org
A mother and daughter duo have been charged with a slew of credit card frauds across the Capital Region. Vancouver Island RCMP say Christine Mauro, 46 and Karen Mauro, 63, conducted hundreds of illegal transactions across Vancouver Island totalling over $90,000 between January 2011 to March 2012. Many of the frauds had never been reported to police and involved extensive followup and liaison with banks, merchants and other agencies, said Insp. John Ibbotson, officer in charge of the RCMP’s federal serious and organized crime operations and financial integrity. “Credit cards were altered and unauthorized credit card data was used to purchase high end electronics, furniture, merchandise and gift cards,” Ibbotson said. “These arrests and charges represent a significant success and disruption of ongoing financial crimes.” The Mauros, who police say are part of a four-person prolific crime group, face 27 combined charges of fraud under $5,000 and use of credit card data. The women appeared in Victoria courts June 13 and are now under house arrest pending a trial date. Most of the transaction occurred within the City of Victoria and southern Island, Ibbotson said. email@example.com

ighlands council approved the aging Twinflower park for a new revamped look. Soon crews will start swapping the sand base for wood fibre surfacing. Concrete retaining walls will be built to keep the wood fibres in the play area. The work is expected to cost about $18,000 and the work should be compete within two months. The metal slide and monkey bars are already repainted. The estimated $3,000 paint job is to eliminate safety
concerns from flaking paint and rust. The chains and swings will soon be replaced on the swing set for about $800. Highlands plans to add two concrete picnic tables on a concrete pad to the park costing $5,324. Council is also considering replacing the wooden play structure on site. “The last piece to tackle is the wooden structure,” said Chris Coates, district CAO. “That will be the finishing touch.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Survey says yes to ferry service Chamber envisions Vancouver-like transit options Charla Huber News staff
Survey says … West Shore residents want a ferry to downtown Victoria. More than 1,800 people took a survey on-line and in person and 96 per cent of the people who reported as a car and bus commuters said they would use a ferry from Royal Bay in Colwood to downtown Victoria. Of those surveyed, 486 responses came from West Shore residents who work in the downtown Victoria core. “I was positively surprised with the results. We were expecting a positive result, but not as strong as it was,” said Dan Spinner, WestShore Chamber of Commerce CEO. The chamber board formally received and reviewed the report at its June 26 meeting. The next step in the process is to have a Sea State Study on weather and the accessibility for ferries to cross the harbour. Spinner explained there may be weather conditions when boats would be unable to sail, similar to incidents at the Tsawwassen terminal.
“But here we would have back up buses and you can’t do that in Tsawwassen,” said Spinner. He said the chamber would like to meet and discuss a ferry option with the Ministry of Transportation as well as West Shore municipalities. The chamber may approach Colwood about providing land for parking where a shuttle could bring people to the ferry. Looking into the future options of the project, Spinner said he’d like to talk to BC Transit and potentially work out a deal with them to have a ferry operate similar to the Seabus in Vancouver. Transit goers could use a BC Transit pass or ticket to board the ferry. “BC Transit would be a required partner to make this work,” said Jonathan Calderwood a Royal Roads University Master of Business Administration student, who conducted the survey and created the report and recommendations. In recent years, CFB Esquimalt offered a ferry service for its employees which was later offered by the Victoria Harbour Ferry Co. which shut down this spring. “That program was for base employees only,” explained Calderwood adding if the service was open to the public it would have more ridership and generate more funds.

The report recommends using 350 passenger mono or catamaran hull vessels. The estimated capital cost for the project is $26 million dollars and would include building suitable facilities and purchasing vessels. While public interest in a ferry project seems high, Spinner is quick to point out adding a ferry is not be the only way to solve traffic congestion plaguing West Shore commuters. “The E&N rail goes around Colwood,” said Spinner adding to the importance of a ferry option for Colwood residents. Aside from getting a commuting ferry Spinner would also like to see rail options opened up from the West Shore to Victoria. Spinner says coming up with solutions for the commuting problems is important as the population on the West Shore will continue to grow and possibly double. email@example.com

Venting session comes too late
squimalt council faces a tough decision in the next few weeks, that of rezoning lands targeted for a sewage treatment plant. Ahead of that decision, residents of the small municipality will gather in great numbers at a hockey arena more often used to host lacrosse games in early summer than citizen forums. A public hearing will give council members a chance to hear what their constituents really think, among other things, about a) putting the main treatment plant at McLoughlin Point, b) what kinds of uses are appropriate for that land and c) whether rejecting the Capital Regional District’s rezoning application will send the project back to the drawing board or simply force the hand of God (the province) to order the rezoning. It’s not as if Esquimalt’s elected officials don’t already know how their residents feel. If they didn’t feel dumped on enough by the CRD’s choice of McLoughlin Point for the main plant, the prospect of a biosolids centre on Viewfield Road got their blood boiling – even if that issue is not up for discussion at the public hearing. Esquimalt Residents’ Association co-chair Nick Kovacs says the CRD has done a poor job convincing people they have any say in the matter. As such, he says, people look at sewage treatment like the way the HST was forced on the people by the B.C. Liberal government. The CRD has already spent in excess of $20 million in the planning stages for the provincially mandated project and appointed an independent sewage commission to oversee project design and construction, not to mention pencilled in early July for a start on building at McLoughlin Point. It has little appetite to look at other options if Esquimalt says no. By mistakenly assuming the township would fall in step with the project timeline, the CRD has painted itself into a corner and could be forced to ask the province to do the dirty work of forcing Esquimalt to rezone. Such a scenario would see the voices of Esquimalt people, the most affected by this project, effectively ignored, as many of them feel they largely have been all along. What do you think?

“At a time when we need affordable housing,” he asks, “why are these buildings being allowed to rot and why do officials seem so reluctant to even talk about it?” Several municipalities in the Capital Region have created bylaws to address the problem of derelict buildings, but experience has shown these to be largely unenforceable. In Victoria, the Northern Junk and Janion buildings sat vacant for years before the city was able to force the owner to sell the downtown properties. The Residential Tenancy Act doesn’t provide much help either, and tenants’ advocates in government are few and far between, prompting Godfrey to wonder, “Where do residents turn when it comes to housing that is being allowed to rot down?” In recent weeks, most of the region has been consumed with deciding the fate of its dung and the rest seems content to view housing creation as a race to build the greatest number of luxury homes. While vacancy rates continue to plateau far below the Canadian average and more and more residents struggle to find a home, I’m left wondering how long it will take before we pull our heads out of our sewage and look up.

Trudeau helped the Pride movement I get the warm-andfuzzies for Pierre Elliott Trudeau at this time every year. That’s because I’m old enough to recall the Great Gay Debate of the late 1960s, when I was fresh-faced, freshly scrubbed, fresh out of high school and full of fresh ideas. Also fresh was Trudeau, our nation’s soon-to-be prime minister. Most gay people of my vintage can tell you that it was PET who, as federal justice minister in December 1967, declared that Big Brother had no business peeking into our boudoirs. “There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation,” Trudeau explained after introducing Bill C-150 to Parliament, an initiative that would, among other things, lead to the decriminalization of homosexuality. Thus, thanks to plucky Pierre, gay men no longer are being hauled off to the hoosegow for being gay men. My dearest male friends
Patti Dawn Swansson
Guest column are gay and I’d rather visit them at Swan’s or Browns than at a federal penitentiary. I bring this to your attention as we approach Pride Week (July 1 to 7) in Victoria, an appropriate time to gauge the distance the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender collective has travelled in its quest for equal rights. For perspective, let’s retreat to 1960s Canada: Homosexuality was a crime and officially was a mental illness. Homosexuals were viewed as a threat to national security. Gay men were the subject of an RCMP witch hunt that resulted in thousands of civil servants and
military personnel losing their jobs simply because they were suspected or confirmed to be gay. During the Great Gay Debate, members of Parliament actually stood in the House of Commons and, without reprimand or sanction, told the nation that homosexuals were “predators” and “really sick.” One MP declared that homosexuality was something that “spreads like a plague.” Sounds like fiction or fantasy, doesn’t it? But it’s true, kids. You can’t make up stuff like the Fruit Machine, a supposed “gaydetecting” contraption used by the RCMP – and funded by our Peeping Tom federal government. Thus, for those of you who wonder why Victoria’s LGBT
collective stages a flamboyant, rainbowfeathered celebration the first week of July each year, consider where we were and where we are. We no longer are criminals. We officially have ceased to be mentally ill. We now marry. We raise families. We serve in our military, our government and the RCMP. Our affections are no longer closeted. We actually hold hands and – egads! – smooch in public. So, yes, we celebrate societal gains, diversity, acceptance, true self and the day Pierre Trudeau booted Big Brother’s butt out of our boudoirs. Here’s to you, Pierre, the Patron Saint of Pride. – Patti Dawn Swansson is a former reporter with the News.

But this year we learned that the federal government plans to roll the Canadian International Development Agency into the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, just as CIDA is promoting development of foreign resources by Canadian mining companies. I worry CIDA will lose its way. Will we throw away immunization programs to bolster corporate returns? Will maternal and child aid be reduced in the name of CEO bonuses? Are these changes intended to help the world’s poor, or Canadian shareholders? It is imperative that Ministers Baird and Fantino maintain CIDA’s core mandate of poverty reduction and assistance to the world’s poorest. Nathaniel Poole Victoria

Easter Seals relay raises cash for kids camp The Money Mart Easter Seals 24-Hour Relay for the Kids raised $367,118 last weekend for children with disabilities and a specialized camp at Shawnigan Lake. Participants tested their endurance for 24 hours around the Uni-
versity of Victoria’s Centennial stadium. The Greater Victoria Down Syndrome Society won the Top Mileage Award, with 60 laps, while the Money Mart team earned the Best Team Spirit Award.
Runner accomplishes Island goal Don Descoteau News staff
Yana Hempler, a plucky 23-year-old who had just completed a run to Victoria from Port Hardy for charity, looked no worse for the wear at Mile 0 on Tuesday. The Saanich resident, a personal trainer and occasional fitness model who not long ago finished off her bachelor of commerce degree at the University of Victoria, was upbeat and smiling for the cameras, having run in from Langford that morning. Asked what she wanted to do now that she had accomplished an objective set almost two years ago, her answer was surprising: “I’m going to drive out to Elk and Beaver Lake and go for a run.” Run for Their Lives is a fundraiser for three organizations – the B.C. SPCA, Recreation Integration Victoria and the Mustard Seed. Hempler still must crunch the numbers to find out how much money was brought in, but the campaign is open for donations at canadahelp.org until June 30, she said. “This is a tremendous personal accomplishment,” said Doug Nutting, executive director of Recreation Integration Victoria. “We’re an organization that facilitates an active lifestyle for people with disabilities and Yana is a great example of what you

Yana Hempler stands at Mile O after completing her Run for Their Lives, a 495-kilometre run from Port Hardy to Victoria. can do when you put your mind to it.” Hempler’s support team was Ian Simpson, who drove the motorhome and shouted encouragement at various points along the 495-kilometre route. Hempler’s landlord the past five years with his wife, Michelle, Simpson said they are like “surrogate parents” to the Russian-born runner and proud she achieved her latest goal. “She never lost her motivation,” he said. “And she got stronger as the run went on. I could see a different body pos-
ture from beginning to end.” Hempler was joined for the Malahat run in the early hours of Monday morning, and on the final leg of the journey Tuesday, by training partner Kara Delaney, 25, who competed in a Tough Mudder race last Saturday. Reflecting on what Hempler tackled and achieved, Delaney said she was an inspiration. “She’s changed my mind about distance running. She’s made me want to get out there and run a marathon.” email@example.com

Residents speak on road closure Kyle Wells News staff
Langford residents had the chance to speak to the proposed closing of Mary Ellen Place at a council meeting last Monday (June 17). However, the issue wasn’t on the agenda as planned. “There were many people who came out about the Mary Ellen Lane issue,” Coun. Denise Blackwell said. “Even though it wasn’t on the agenda, the mayor allowed anybody who wanted to speak on it to speak. So that took at least an hour.” Some issues raised
were an otter habitat in Glen Lake, below the dead-end lane. Neighbour Ann Linton also spoke to her concern over access to her garage. Blackwell said the purchaser has committed to not make any alterations to the lake front, and will allow
Linton to access her garage. While she still opposes the sale, Linton is more comfortable with it now. “We won that,” said Linton. “I realize it was sort of a hopeless cause anyhow, it’s just nice to see everyone voice their opinion and

Bert Lambier shows off some of his welding art in his Metchosin shop.
“I had no intention going to work at the shipyards or dockyard, but everyone else had the intention,” he said. “They all laughed at me and said they’d see me at the shipyards.” Now Lambier jokes he’s the only one from his class still working in welding. He’s most well-known for his steel kelp sculptures and he said he’s always been inspired by the ocean. “When I was a kid I would swim until I was blue in the lips,” he said. “Now I like to go sit down at the ocean with a coffee.” He’s also been known to snorkel at Taylor Beach and the Esquimalt Lagoon. Some of his other creations include bowls made of nuts and bolts, space rockets and flowers. firstname.lastname@example.org

ust six months after Logan Volkers made his first salsa dancing steps he is training to dance in the World Latin Cup. Volkers took up salsa dancing through Victoria’s Salsa Caliente in January and his dance partner, Olga Mosca, started in September. Last week Mosca and Volkers took first place in the Northwest Amateur Salsa Championship qualifier in Portland, and will now train for the Miami-hosted World Latin Cup semifinals, in December. “They’re doing ridiculously well, but we work them pretty hard, too,” said Christina Morrison, who’s instructed salsa dancers for 15 years, mostly in Victoria. Both attended classes taught by Morrison at Café Casablanca and showed promise. They were soon made partners and trained under Morrison. “They put in the time to dance with all kinds of people in lots of classes, four to five times a week, and that’s how you improve,” Morrison said. The results have been trophy yielding, winning the B.C. and Northwest competitions. Volkers is ready to admit it’s been a quick learning curve. There’s no way he imagined he’d have come this far in six months.
“Guess I’m a fast learner. I previously did a little dancing all over the place, but I think it’s just in my blood,” he joked. “My parents met on the dance floor, country dancing in Alberta.” In all seriousness, it took three years
for a friend to draw the reluctant Volkers to Café Casablanca. He moved to Victoria to do his undergrad and masters in engineering at UVic and now works in a startup software company. With his nights free, he finally obliged. “My first night I did horribly but better than I should have and (Morrison) decided to let me understudy for some of the touring teams. I worked my butt off and when the competition came up, I partnered with (Mosca) to put a routine together,” he said.
approved Mosca had a different path with some previous dance experience. Born in Singapore to Italian parents, Mosca was raised in Rome, Italy, where she figure skated until she moved to Oak Bay as a 14 year old. There, she continued to figure skate and also danced tap for a year. “It’s incredibly exciting to have started in September and already done this well. It’s great to have the people around me who support me so much.”

The Steve Miller Band is on a comeback that includes a show at the Archie Browning Sports Centre on June 30.
The Joker turns 40 email@example.com
He’s a picker, he’s a grinner, he’s a lover and he’s a sinner – and yes, Steve Miller is coming to Victoria with his singular sound. Miller has come a long way from The Joker, his U.S. platinum selling album, in the last 40 years. The band formed in 1968, but didn’t find fame until the release of The Joker in late 1973, which was followed up by band’s two most successful studio albums, the 1976 release Fly Like an Eagle and 1977’s Book of Dreams. The announcement of the 2013 tour by the Steve Miller Band follows four of the most pro-
ductive years in Miller’s illustrious career. Miller has released two new albums – the 2010 number one blues album, Bingo, and its successor, Let Your Hair Down – the first new Steve Miller Band records in 18 years. An evening with Steve Miller Band is on Sunday, June 30 at the Archie Browning Sports Centre in Esquimalt at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are available online at hightideconcerts.net; or call the High Tide box office at 250-478-1888; Lyle’s Place 770 Yates St.; Ditch Records, 784 Fort St. and the McPherson Box Office 250-386-6121.
Rookies spice up dance scene A13 Continued from Page A9
The dancers have some intangible qualities that Morrison looks for in competitive dancers. “When we hold auditions each year we look for attitude, personality and work ethic, and they’ve got all of those things,” she said. The goal for competition is never to try to go into it to win, Morrison said, but to do better
than last time by as much as possible. Mosca and Volkers will travel with Morrison this summer to see the pro World Salsa Championships in Puerto RIco, where there will be a chance to train under some of the top dancers in the world. But Volkers already has an understanding of what’s made him and Mosca a successful duo.
Sangster Elementary Playground Closed for Summer Due to construction of seismic upgrades on Sangster Elementary, the school playground will be closed throughout the summer. Sorry for any inconvenience. Student safety is #1.
“The biggest trick to doing well is to dance like you’re having fun, and as long as you do that, you’re more relaxed and going to seem natural and relaxed, which is a big part of doing well.” Another team of Salsa Caliente dancers, Jess Ruskin and Keith Myler, placed second in Portland.

Local theatre stages a comeback Artistic directors offer a variety of productions to stay afloat by Kyle Wells email@example.com
hen provincial gaming grants for cultural programs were slashed in the middle of an economic downturn, many local theatre groups realized how tenuous their financial
stability is. “That loss created a period of uncertainty and certainly created some deficit situations that some people had a hard time getting out of,” says Ivan Habel, general manager of the belfry Theatre. even though the belfry regained most of that funding, and is doing well, the episode left the company cautious. Habel says the company now thinks twice before developing new works, focusing primarily on staging plays with an assured audience. The scale of plays is also carefully scrutinized each season, with an eye to keeping costs down. Denise brown, theatre manager of langham Court Theatre, says the key to surviving, and thriving, has been finding new audiences while pleasing the regulars. To do this, her theatre stages both crowd-pleasing favourites and more edgy choices to appeal to different audiences. “I think it’s important to do both,” brown says. “In terms of marketing and seeing the sales patterns, I think langham has understood the balance of what their patrons want.” The first two shows of langham’s current season, 84 Charing Cross Road and lady Windermere’s Fan, did well. The established titles and crowd-pleasing comedies
were often sold out. Its third show, That Face, an edgier psychological drama from 2007, written by a 19-year-old playwright, did not sell as well, but brought in a different crowd. “If we don’t adapt, we don’t grow,” brown says. “That’s with any business.” Theatre Inconnu is another charitable, not-for-profit society that relies on funding and a core audience. Clayton Jevne, artistic director and manager, says things are going well for the company, which has a mandate to put on alternative productions. “We try to market ourselves as being a company that does shows that will challenge the audience and that reach out to a certain part of the population,” Jevne says. “I guess we’re targeting a specific kind of person.” Despite staying afloat, Jevne says it would be nice to see more people come out to shows. A 30-year industry vet, Jevne says Victoria’s theatre scene is consistent and that there is enough community interest to keep a wide variety of theatre alive and well. This variety is a sign of a strong industry, said Heather lindsay, general manager for Intrepid Theatre. It means there is still a wide audience for theatre in Victoria, despite a slow economy, and a strong community of artists and theatre companies there to meet the demand. “There just seems to be a lot of great project work happening,” lindsay says. “It’s just really wonderful when there always seems to be a theatre or dance or arts event that’s happening.”

Victoria cycling fans aren’t the only ones sweet on Ryder Hesjedal as he enters Saturday’s Tour de France. The West Shore product briefly wore the red jersey, earning a pair of kisses as the second overall cyclist through Stage 2 of the Tour de Suisse earlier in June. He crashed and withdrew on Stage 3. Garmin-Sharp photo
Garmin still sweet on Ryder Ryder Hesjedal leads Garmin into France Travis Paterson News staff
Here he goes again. Ryder Hesjedal tops the list of Garmin-Sharp’s nine riders for the Tour de France, which were named Wednesday from the team’s hotel on the French island of Corsica. The Tour opens with three stages on Corsica, beginning Saturday (June 29) from the picturesque city of Porto Vecchio, before moving to the mainland, where it will wrap the 3,404-kilometres in Paris on July 21. Because it’s the 100th anni-
versary of the race, its route will run completely in France, though it has a history of looping stages through surrounding countries. Hesjedal is once again the team’s go-to man and will be their ace to compete for the yellow jersey. The Belmont secondary grad and former mountain biking Olympian is riding his success as the 2012 Giro d’Italia winner and sixth place finisher at the 2010 Tour de France. At 32, there is much time left for the skinny armed ‘preying mantis,’ as cycling commentators have described him, to win another Grand Tour. Hesjedal is one of five Garmin-Sharp riders returning from Garmin-Cervelo’s Tour de France team title in 2011.
Joining Hesjedal are American veterans Christian Vande Velde and Tom Danielson, up-and-coming Lithuanian Ramunas Navardauskas and British time trial expert David Millar, who were all part of the 2011 team. They make up the core of the team with Irishman Dan Martin, and will all be crucial to Hesjedal’s success in the hunt for yellow. Martin is enjoying a breakout season having won the French one-day classic Liege-BastonLiege and Spanish stage-race Volta a Catalunya. There is one notable exception, American sprinter Tyler Farrar, who is Garmin-Sharp’s only remaining stage winner from 2011. The sprinter hasn’t performed to the same standard this year

and this was left off the team, which is built with hill climbers and general classification riders. The team is debuting three promising young cyclists with Andrew Talansky (U.S.A.), Jack Bauer (New Zealand) and Rohan Dennis (Australia). “We will protect our best general classification options and see how the race shakes out,” said Jonathan Vaughters, GarminSharp CEO. “Our approach is a little unconventional, but we’ve managed to come up with surprises every year at the Tour and we’re hoping for the same as we head into Corsica,” he said. “We will aim to place high in the general classification. Ryder’s won (the Giro d’Italia) and placed top10 in the Tour de France, (Talansky) is young and while it’s his first Tour de France, he is coming off a great season and Martin is having a breakout year.” Questions do surround Hesjedal, as he’s withdrawn from three straight Grand Tours, having crashed out of the 2012 TdF and 2013 Tour de Suisse, and fallen ill during the 2013 Giro d’Italia. All indications are that he’s fully recovered from the heavy blow to the neck and head he suffered in Switzerland earlier this month. Hesjedal was banged up with cuts and contusions to the wrist, hip, shoulder, elbow and both knees. The Tour will be broadcast live each morning on Sportsnet and replayed later in the day. email@example.com
