2011 Tour De France: Cadel Evans Ready To Become 1st Australian Winner

The 2011 Tour de France comes to an end on Sunday when the cyclists begin in Créteil and ride to Paris for the Champs-Élysées. Cadel Evans, barring any accidents or strange happenings on the course, will win the race and become the first Australian to do so. He leads Andy Schleck by +1:34 and Frank Schleck by +2:30.

Mark Cavendish will be one of the other jersey winners, as he holds 285 points for the green jersey. Samuel Sanchez is the King of the Mountains leader and will wear the red polka dot jersey at the end of Sunday. Pierre Rolland, Stage 19 winner, holds a 46 second lead over Rein Taaramäe for the white jersey as the best youth racer.

Tom Danielson of Durango, CO, and Boulder, CO-based Team Garmin-Cervelo will likely hold ninth overall place and be the highest-finishing American in this year's tour. He is +8:15 behind Evans.
