Victory at last for Cadel Evans

Victory at last for Cadel Evans Image

International cycling champion Cadel Evans returned to Docklands last month for the third annual Suit Up and Ride event.

Hundreds of worker came together on November 23 to compete for glory and to raise money for Orygen Youth Health.  

The quirky event saw competitors cycle a 1.2km loop along NewQuay Promenade in their work attire.

After coming second at last year’s Suit Up and Ride, Grocon, assisted by Cadel Evans, rode to victory last month.

It was the second year running that the champion cyclist had been paired with the Grocon team, albeit this year with more successful results.

This year’s runner up was the Frank Health Insurance team, which competed alongside Dutch professional cyclist, Koen de Kort.

After the formalities had been taken care of, competitors were treated to a live performance from Hunters and Collectors front man Mark Seymour and two other band members.

“With perfect weather and Mark Seymour performing it was wonderful to see so many dressed-up corporate teams enjoying the best of the Docklands,” organiser Lisa Bird said.

Some 38 teams competed in the event which raised over $30,000 for Orygen Youth Health.
