Jussi Veikkanen

Finland is not a cycling country. So today is a historical day for Finnish Cyclists. Jussi is starting in the 3th stage of the Tour de France in his well deserved polka-dot jersey.

Here is a link to an interview with him yesterday:




This great news was not even mentioned on the National Public Television ( Yle) sport news. Mtv3 which usually doesn’t report on cycling mentioned it and even showed a picture of Jussi. There is still a long way to go for Finnish cycling but things can go fast. Just look at what happend in Norway when Thor Hushovd started winning races in the TdF
