Happy Birthday, Denis Giraudet!

Belated birthday wishes to Denis Giraudet, one of the most experienced codrivers still in the game. You gotta love

…his name. So fun to say. Den-ee Zhi-rah-day.

…that he codrove for Stephane Sarrazin, my second-favorite French rally driver.

…the sense of awe that I get when I read his CV. Juha Kankkunen, Didier Auriol, five victories…nice.

…one of the best rally quotes of the year: “We met a big cow in the middle of the road…It was a big milky thing, you know?” (2006 Rally New Zealand)

I hope to see more of him in the WRC in 2007, because every sport could use more gentlemen like him.
