Ryder Hesjedal - Giro d'Italia

With the 2014 Giro d'Italia starting I quickly put together a background for my phone supporting my favourite cyclist, Victoria's Ryder Hesjedal. The image is Ryder's race number along with his team's argyle pattern and the iconic pink of the Maglia Rosa as a background.


I tweeted the image out to Ryder, and he actually retweeted the image to his followers. The image has since gotten numerous favourites, retweets and mentions. Very cool to contact your favourite athletes directly like that, and have your work seen by people around the world.


Could be nice to do a print or two in the future.
