Congratulations Cadel - winner of the 2011 Le Tour de France

Congratulations Cadel Evans from Australia in winning the 2011 Le Tour de France.

As an Aussie I am very proud of his achievement, and so I have created a little mosaic with some pictures I took in 2005 when we were in France at the time of the Tour. (thankyou to www for the pic of Cadel in this mosaic)

Cadel, born Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia, announced in 1991 when he was 14 that he wanted to win the Tour de France and today he realised his dream.

Cadel said - "I think that's the ultimate dream of a Tour rider, to stand on the Champs-Elysees with an Australian singing the national anthem ... it's not a dream that comes true for many Australians.

"This win is for everyone in our country. It's amazing."

I have been glued to the TV every night watching the Tour - maybe now I can get a proper night's sleep!

  1. We've been up every morning, very early, to see as much of the Tour as possible while it's live. I heard that there may be a national holiday declared in Australia - it that true? It should be!

  2. Another great Aussie and he seems like a great bloke. Twenty years of hard work finally paid off in spades for him! Well-earned.

    Now about this national holiday!!!
