On the occasion of Cadel Evans‘ impending retirement, team BMC presented him with a custom made and decorated Team Machine SLR01, chronicling the story of his life and successful career as one of the most succesful Australian professional racing cyclists ever.
The bike sports an image of Tintin on the top tube to highlight the European influence on Australian cycling, and on Evans’ career in particular. It has to be said that Tintin’s bike in the picture is a far less technological affair than the SLR01.
