Cadel, 2011 Tour de France Winner

Cadel Evans has won the Tour de France. Yellow, the French colour of triumph, is on his heart and feet with Diadora’s “yellow arrow”.

The “yellow jersey” is his. Cadel Evans has won the Tour de France wearing Diadora shoes, once again on the highest step of the podium of world cycling. Australian-born Evans was first a world level mountain bike champion before becoming a road cycling professional, specialising in stage races. He won the 2009 Road Cycling World Championship title on 27 September, 2009, in Mendrisio, Switzerland. In 2010 he won the Walloon Arrow and in 2011, after winning a stage at the Giro, he won the Tirreno-Adriatico and the Tour de Romandie. The prelude to his triumph in the Tour de France arrived with his victory of the tour 4th stage and his spectacular Grenoble time-trial.

Diadora writes the umpteenth chapter in cycling history. A path that began 28 years ago, throughout the course of which many successes have been achieved by the athletes followed by the Veneto company in the most prestigious road and track competitions: Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Vuelta, the Olympics and World Hour Record. Giovanni Battaglin marked the beginning of a long list of athletes to wear Diadora, amongst whom: Francesco Moser, Moreno Argentin, Marino Lejarreta, Maurizio Fondriest, Gianni Bugno, Davide Rebellin, Guido Bontempi, Alexi Grewal, Laurent Mignon, Bearne Riss, Andy Hampsten Tony Rominger, Alex Quelle, Johan Museeuw, Claudio Chiappucci, Rolf Sorensen, Mario Cipollini, Eugenio Berzin, Andrei Tchmil, Danilo Di Luca, Igor Astarloa, Damiano Cunego and lastly the champion Cadel Evans.
