    Cadel Evans lost 4:13 on stage 8 of the Tour de France and languished in
    23rd position ahead of stage 9 to Bagnères-de-Bigorre but a dogged ride
    during Movistar’s all-out offensive followed by a defensive stance on the
    final climb of Hourquette d’Ancizan saw the Australian finish alongside the
    main overall race contenders.
    The 2011 Tour winner now sits 16th overall, 4:36 down. As he warmed down in
    the shade by the BMC bus Evans spoke about what he felt had been a bizarre
    stage after Garmin and then Movistar took the fight to Sky.
    The British team crumbled on the first two climbs, leaving Froome isolated
    for much of the stage, with the race leader forced to cover a number of
    moves.
    Evans, with his confidence partially restored now heads into the rest day
    happier, and admitted that “he will keep his hopes alive and quitting is
    not an option.”

  2. I agree with that. Cadel is a down-to-earth type guy. Decent guy. He
    deserves to do well in this year’s tour. p.s. Please everyone, we know they
    do ‘stuff’, so with that said, let’s just appreciate their hard-work and
    commitment. Just saying. Peace. 🙂
