Allez Allez Cadel Evans!

Cadel Evans we salute you.

You have provided us with the most memorable and exciting Tour de France ever and showed true grit on the slopes of the Galibier and Alpe d'Huez. I feel privileged to have been able to see you and the BMC team, while in the Vendee, roll out of the starting blocks for the team time trial and even more privileged to be able sacrifice fours hours of sleep per night when I returned home to be able to watch you approach Le Tour like you never have before. You dug deep, worked hard and came up with the goods. Aldo Sassi would be proud, I'm sure the BMC team are proud and I know as an Australian and a cyclist I have never been more proud of an Australia sportsperson. Enjoy the Champs-Élysées tomorrow with the boys and you can be sure that we will be here in Australia giving you a standing ovation as you to take the top of the podium and don the maillot jaune.

Allez Allez Cadel Evans!
