Cycling: Tour de France winner Cadel Evans will retire in February
Cadel Evans, the only Australian to win the Tour de France, has announced he is to retire from cycling.
The 37-year-old, who won the Tour in 2011, will step away from the sport after the inaugural Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road one-day race in February.
"The chance of winning another Grand Tour is probably past me, so now is a good time to say: 'Stop,'" he said.
Evans twice finished runner-up on the Tour in 2007 and 2008 and won the world championships road race in 2009.
