Giroud and Hindley Celebrated in Australia: ‘Like Cadel Evans’ – Cycling

Australia’s Jay Hindley celebrated his feat yesterday in Verona, becoming the first kangaroo land advocate to win the Giro d’Italia. However, the 26-year-old from Perth isn’t the first athlete from Oceania to win a major race. Before him, as the local press recalls, it was Cadel Evans who managed the feat that won the 2011 Tour de France at the age of 34. “Like Hindley in Italy, absolutely no one,” recalls the Sports News website, which publishes on its homepage a beautiful photo of Hindley’s pink jersey with an endless cup in his hands.
The portal tracks the Hindley family’s day, with their parents in Verona whom the runner had not seen for more than two years, since February 2020. “At the time – Hindley admitted to the Australian press – I didn’t know I hadn’t come home for more than two years.”
Jay Hindley made history – they write in Australia -, becoming the first-ever Australian to win the Giro d’Italia, and second-ever to win a great cycling tour, joining the great Cadel Evans who won the Tour de France in 2011.
“Hindley’s victory in the Giro is a pivotal moment for Australian cycling, not just a part of it,” Skynews Australia reports.
