Member for Katherine, Willem Westra van Holthe, says his thoughts are with Australian cyclist Cadel Evans as he prepares for tonight’s individual time trial at the Tour de France.
Mr. Westra van Holthe said the event should determine whether Cadel takes out the Tour this year.
“Regardless of the outcome of the time trial, Cadel Evans has shown over many years why he is one of the world’s best cyclists and a fantastic Australian athlete.” Mr. Westra van Holthe said.
“It would be fitting, given his enormous amount of work and sacrifice over many years, that Cadel Evans achieves his dream and wins the Tour de France.”
“He is better placed than at any other time during his cycling career to win and I sincerely hope he is successful.” Mr. Westra van Holthe said.
“The Cadel Evans story is a reminder that anything is possible, regardless of whether you are born in one of the big cities or a small town like Katherine.”
“Cadel spent his early years in the town and it’s fantastic to see him doing so well in one of the toughest events on the sporting calendar.”
“I’m sure all of Katherine and the Northern Territory are right behind Cadel as he seeks to make history. We wish him well.” Mr. Westra van Holthe said.
