So... A tiny wee man has won a giant swirl of gold, and the only thing bigger than that is his smile.
The only reason I'm mentioning this now is because we're a couple of days (all right, a week) behind I've just googled it whilst watching the last stage.
But I have to say it's pretty good. I'm a bit of a fan for several reasons. Firstly, as a fellow short arse I feel it's a triumph for short arses all round. It says, yeh, we may not be able to reach things but who needs to when we can climb mountains like that. And now when someone says to me 'Good things come in small packages' and I say 'What? Like smallpox and addictive narcotics?' I can also answer 'and Giro winners.' Two, neither of us suit that shade of pink. And C he's been generally quite smiley about it, which is very nice. He's only 24, the wean, and to have him look so very pleased with himself, and hear him big up Columbia... that's how winners should conduct themselves definitely, and Columbia could be a future holiday destination for cycling which is no bad thing which considering the reputation of the country would be a nice change!
Short Arse Rules.
