"Firstly, he appears to be intelligent."

:lol:

Yep the sports journos are outright confused and they aren't used to dealing with non-footy boofheads (rugby union players aside eg Nick Farr-Jones or Peter Fitzsimmons type)...how do they deal with a multilingual bon vivant like Cadel?

LMAO, now that is humour unlike the tripe dished up in the Spam Fail during the week.

For those who missed it, there's a good audio interview with Cadel
by Nova FM's Fitzy and Whippa, available in podcast (aired earlier in the week)...

http://www.novafm.com.au/audio_fitzy-wi ... ans_102412

An interesting question they put to Cadel is what he is going to buy to celebrate
or reward himself for the win. Cadel's reply is that he's got all the material things
he wants - what he has is "more than nice enough for me".

That's a refreshing change from the self-centeredness of many others in public life.

Cadel is going to be a promoters dream on the professional speaking circuit when he's
done with cycling.

Would be interesting to know where he sees himself after he retires. Could you see him doing the team manager thing?

Just remember when you get back to land down under that mighty Witch Doctor got you win in TDF, or Witch Dr might whip out magic bone (theres still some slimy meat n' stuff on around the joint) and unleash bad magic. No Goat for Chiarra if Witch Doctor doesn't get signature on SCA Jersey! Otherwsie Witch Dr says good win!

I saw the cover of a New Idea magazine on my walk past a newsagent this morning. My Cadel appreciation doesn't quite stoop that low...

Cheers,
Simon.

It's a little OT but I liked the story that came in at #2 as well....

http://velonews.competitor.com/2011/07/ ... e_186245/9

....certainly from the outside it gave the appearance of a cleaner Tour. Cadel winning helps the image of cycling imho. Fingers crossed there's no more nasty post Tour revelations :|

Earlier this week there was a report he and the podium brothers were going to ride in the Tour of Colarado (dunno if that's its official name or not) in late August. At best, it would seem be a flying visit only then...

Cheers,
Simon.

Hi

From the Age, August 3, 2011

CADEL Evans will parade through central Melbourne next week to have his Tour de France heroics acclaimed on Australian territory.
The Age confirmed last night that Evans, who has scarcely left his European base in the tiny Swiss town of Stabio since his monumental victory, will fly to Melbourne with wife Chiara to receive public and state receptions as part of a three-day visit.

That qualifies as a flying visit then :)

I don't suppose work will miss me one day next week if I wander down to the town hall...

No time listed yet, but I suppose it'll depend on whether he rides through Melbourne or does the motorcade...

Hope it's a motorcade. If he rides, it'll be over too quickly.
