Evans looking for BMC assurances

September 2, 2013

Cadel Evans’ future will be decided very soon as the Australian rider registered his worst result in Tour de France this year. The man from Victoria, Australia, wants to carry on at grand tour level, but his dreams will only come true if BMC backs his ambition.

Evans failed to reach his team’s expectations in the Tour de France this year. After dropping to thirty-ninth overall after stage 21, Cadel Evans told Unibet that he needs to speak to his team; The Tour de France is not something that one just do on his own; there were a lot of people he wanted to talk to and find out whether they are confident on him or not. He needs people to support him if he still has to go on.

In the Giro d’Italia, Evans finished in the 3rd position. After that there were high expectations from him. People expected him to do well in the Tour. Earlier, Evans told that illness bust up his schedule last year and taking part in Giro d’Italia was crucial to rebuild his fitness. He added that 2013 has been his worst season as a professional.

Decision making and planning is a real tough job. Participating at Giro certainly did not work for him. However, that does not mean he would have done well in the Tour if he would not have taken part in Giro. Evans said that this is the very first race in his career that he lost. He thinks, he just have to learn from it once again. Now it is time to look back, find out the mistakes and see where he could improve and bring his confidence back.
