Tejay Van Garderen does the polka

He’s young, talented, from Bozeman, Montana, and was born the year I graduated high school. The kid has class for miles. Congratulations to Tejay Van Garderen to taking the climber’s jersey and most aggressive rider award on today’s stage.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. little factoid –
    Lemond is the only other american to earn the dots. but he didn’t get to wear them as he was in yellow at the time. so Tejay is the first american to ride around france in dots. congrats.

  2. Ant, I did not know that. Thanks!

    We’ll see what the kid can do in the future. I’ve heard his name mentioned before. Some have said he’s a man to watch for the future. I’d say he’s shown himself in a big way this year. In his first Tour no less.
