Wearing his winner's yellow jersey, Tour de France winner Cadel Evans (L) is greeted by Victoria's premier Ted Baillieu (R) and some of the thousands of fans which lined the streets for his homecoming victory parade, in Melbourne on August 12, 2011. Evans' win, the first by an Australian, was hailed here as one of the country's finest ever sporting achievements, ranking alongside Rod Laver's tennis exploits and their America's Cup yachting triumph.
