Evans announces cycling retirement

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.
