Cadel Evans Historic Victory in the 2011 Tour de France

True grit has never been more apparent in sport than the ride of Cadel Evans in the 2011 Tour de France. Having already chased down a 4 min break away through the torturous climbs of the Alpes-de-Haute-Province to keep himself in the race, Evens went into the final time trial stage a mere 57 seconds behind the leader Andy Schleck. Not only did Cadel make up the time, he also added a commanding 1min 34second advantage and became the first Australian to win the Tour de France.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
