He’s discreet about it but Tour de France winner Cadel Evans does plenty of work behind the scenes to help charities. Things got visible when he was wearing pro Tibet t-shirts just before the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing but he’s done plenty more. Recently he auctioned off a bike for a school in Nepal and he’s done this on other occasions before, each time helping out a bit.
Now he’s putting his 2011 Tour de France bike up for raffle, this time to help a cerebral palsy charity in Australia that’s linked to a reader of this blog, Troy Upfield.
I appreciate this might be of more interest to Aussie readers more than others but it’s for a good cause and maybe you didn’t realise what Evans gets up in this spare time.
