Ryder is holding on to 86th place overall after 4 days in Le Tour! Our Victoria BC boy is riding as only the 3rd Canadian to ever ride the Tour De France. The last time a Canadian Rode Le Tour was 1990 when Steven Bauer held onto the yellow jersey for nine days, finishing 27th overall.

Ryder is riding for Team Garmin-Chipotle who wear awesome argyle jerseys.

*EDIT-I forgot about GORD FRASER, he rode in 1997 but did not finish the race.
also there was a rider in 1937 who didn't even finish the first stage, Pierre Gachon
