The Tour de France still has 1 more stage to go, but tradition means there will be no attacking the yellow jersey on the last stage into Paris.
Cadel started the time trial 57 secs behind Andy Shleck, and Evans blew the race apart finishing 2nd and beating Andy Shleck by over 2 minutes and claiming his 1st Tour win and the 1st for Australia. Evans finished second in the time trial, just seven seconds behind German Tony Martin with three-time champion Alberto Contador third.

After coming 2nd twice, Cadel went one step further and is a massive sporting moment for him and Australia. "I've had some bad moments in the last 10 years (but) that just makes the good moments even better."
