Andrey Amador was the first Costa Rican ever, and the first Central American cyclist ever, to wear the pink jersey.
However, that was yesterday.
Today was a very difficult mountain stage.
When Amador had difficulty following other favourites on a steep slope, a woman waving a Costa Rican flag started running besides him, encouraging him.
By going downhill fast after the mountain top, Amador managed to catch up with other favourites again.
However, then came another mountain, and still another one …
This April 2016 video is called Kruijswijk aiming high at the Giro d’Italia.
This is a Dutch interview with Kruijswijk after winning the pink jersey today.
Tomorrow, there will be time trial stage up a mountain. Kruijswijk now has 41 seconds advantage on number two, Italian favourite Nibali.
Who will win?
