GERRY Ryan is familiar with the white-knuckle nerves that elite sport can provoke.

The highly-successful Australian businessman has cheered on Melbourne Cup winners, Melbourne Storm premierships and St Kilda Grand Final sides.

Yet right now on the other side of the world, Ryan is a blur of tension and excitement.

“I’m having a nice little glass now to relax the nerves,” he told the Herald Sun from Italy on Friday.

Ryan is on the edge of his seat because the cycling team he created in 2011, now known as Mitchelton-SCOTT, stands on the cusp of creating history as the first Australian team to win a Grand Tour.
