    Cadel Evans should enter the pantheon of true sporting legends in this country. This is a massive achievement, especially on the back of a team that was weaker than others. He can truly say he did this himself, and deserves the accolades. I tip my hat to you, mate!

    Great effort by another Australian, Richie Porte to finish fifth, we will hear a lot more from him in the future as he is a relative newcomer.

    Congrats Cadel, you stood up when no one thought you would. Although part of a weaker team you showed characteristics of a champion, you have done a massive deal for Australian cycling not only this tours but in past tours and for that they should be forever thankful. Well done buddy, enjoy the spoils, they are well deserved.

    BMC did much better than the team Cadel had last time (of course Cadel has an injury last time too). I knew the Schlecks were not good in the TT but I'm surprised given how well Andy did in the TT last year. Cadel flogged that TT, what a way to win it.

    The reliable 'diesel engine' wins!

    Legend. Back up cyclo's call of him going down as one of Australia's great sportsman. Undoubtedly this will be the best sporting performance by an Australian this year possibly this decade.

    What a performance and what an achievement. He absolutely tore the field a new one today and looked in a great rhythm from the start. But really he set it up in the previous two stages in the mountains and carried the attack to the others more or less single handedly. Utterly heroic in the last week.

    Cadel made history today. A true legend of the sport of cycling and sport is general. Makes me proud to be Australian. As soon as he passed Schleck's time, my 2 boys and I were jumping up and down in the lounge room, and cheering him on. We're heading down to the Seine tomorrow to welcome him to Paris. Can't wait.

    Massive for Cadel and the Australian cycling community. I've been held utterly spell-bound by the tour this year and these guys are seriously hard-core athletes.

    This win ranks up there with the best of them in any sport and he is now a true legend of Australian sport.

    Proud as fucking punch for you Cadel. Great stuff mate.

    I am so proud of Cadel. Almost shed a tear of joy when he put on that yellow jersey.

    This is the biggest individual sporting achievement in Australian history.

    Once again, I am so proud

    Andy Schleck shattered obviously but paid credit to Cadel, good to hear I like the Schlecks but they were a bit full of it early on, nice to see them redeem themselves by paying credit to Cadel. Would love to see Cadel do it again but Andy had got to go close for next year. Looking forward to perhaps the entry of an Aussie team next year which I believe is in the pipe works.
