Melbourne Turns Out to Yell for Cadel12/08/2011
The City of Melbourne put on a “Yell for Cadel” welcome back event at Federation Square yesterday, to celebrate the champion cyclist’s Tour de France win.
They say there was around 150,000 proud Melburnians in attendance – a record for the venue. That said, most of us were crowded in the incredibly packed St Kilda Road and Flinders Street.
Sadly, I arrived late and couldn’t get close enough to snap a shot of Cadel as he cycled slowly along and shook hands with the crowd.
But hey, here’s some photos of an excited and lively Melbourne.
Hopefully he wins it again next year – so I can make a better effort to shake his hand!
