The boy done good

As did the Aussie!

Well done to Cadel Evans on finally nailing the yellow jersey in Paris. A really gutsy performance in the Alps. I think there are going to be some very overhung Aussie heads for the next few days.

Even better though was Mark Cavendish finishing the Tour with his third Champs Elysees victory in a row and winning the Green Jersey overall. Last year Cav became the first rider ever to win in Paris two years in a row. Doing it three times just confirms what many along with I think. Cav is now a legend.

Congratulations also go out to Samuel Sanchez for his King of the Mountains victory, Pierre Rolland for his Best young Rider win and to Team Garmin Cervelo for taking the Best team prize.

This year has been the most exiting Tour I can remember. The organisers came up with a cunning plan to liven things up. It worked a treat! Roll on next year!


  1. And a big applause for Johnny Hoogerland for the “most memorable moment” of the Tour 2011

  2. Spot on Tommy. He'll be alright though. We all know Chicks dig scars and he sure has some scars!

    Mrs Secret and I went to Paris for the last stage. We did a 10 1/2 hour shift on the Champs Elysees, starting at 09:45 to bag a good spot and finishing after the lasp of honour. Two of your young countrymen stood post next to us.
