2011 Tour de France Winner - Australia goes wild for Evans, their first Tour de France champion
Even in a country that has a tradition of punching above its weight in international competitions, Cadel Evans' Tour de France triumph was being hailed as one of Australia's finest sporting achievements, well before he completed the largely ceremonial ride to the finish line in Paris on Sunday.
While politicians at state and federal level were discussing how to commemorate the victory - by erecting a monument, hosting a parade or staging a massive party, among other ideas - the citizens in Barwon Heads outside Melbourne were wearing yellow and pitching the idea of naming a bridge near the town in honour of their favourite son.
Evans celebrated after crossing the finish line in the pack on the Champs-Elysee, embracing riders from different teams as the massive crowd on France's most famous thoroughfare cheered wildly.
