Australian cycling star Cadel Evans with specially designed undershirts emblazoned with "Free Tibet" under his jersey during the ongoing Tour de France cycling race in France on Sunday July 20, 2008.
Evans has taken a strong public stand on the Tibet issue. "Trying to bring awareness of the Tibet movement is something someone in my position can do. I just feel really sorry for them. They don't harm anyone and they are getting their culture taken away from them. I don't want to see a repeat of what happened to Aboriginal culture [in Australia] happen to another culture."
