2017... record numbers of Australian cyclists are now on the world stage. Who is next to wear the Maillot Jaune?

Cadel Evans, the first Australian to win the Tour de France, accomplished Australia’s greatest single sporting achievement in history, if not, it was equal to any before it!

                                                                                                  - Greg Baum, The Age, Melbourne.

The Executive and members of the Maillot Jaune Club Melbourne recognise Cadel Evans, the first Australian and a Patron of our Club, in winning the biggest annual sports event in the world and the most prestigious grand cycling tour of them all – the Tour de France, July 2011. Cadel and the BMC Team, gave us the pleasure and sheer excitement of witnessing this historic win in defeating 200 of the world’s greatest practitioners of road race cycling, in extreme conditions and over some of the most difficult terrain on the planet.

Record numbers of Australian cyclists are now taking to the European UCI road racing circuits; Maillot Jaune Club Melbourne extends best wishes and success to them all.

Maillot Jaune Club Melbourne, Australia

The Maillot Jaune Club is a friendly inexpensive way to maintain friendships with fellow racing cyclists through social activities, race meetings and special events.

Formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1998 by a small group of former champion track and road racing cyclists, the Maillot Jaune Club set out with simple aims: Provide activities aimed at bringing past and present day racing cyclists together in a social environment to maintain camaraderie and interest in competitive cycling. Support, where possible, the development of cycle racing with a focus on youth and in some cases, the disadvantaged. Welcome new members into the Maillot Jaune Club who have reached, or nearing the end of their competitive racing careers.
