Cadel Evans to Skip Adelaide Tour

Cadel Evans has been reported to be preparing himself to race along with a group of corporate people in order to raise money fro fund collection for Giant steps, an organization for the Autistic children.

Meanwhile his teammate from BMC team is all set to get the cycle rolling at the Tour Down Under in South Australia in the coming month. Presumably, he is not going to compete in the biggest rod race of Australia. But he is doing this for a just cause and feels fine about it. By the time the race starts, he will be seen practicing in Europe in a training camp.

His manager, Jason Bakker says about him, “He doesn’t do it [not race Tour Down Under] dismissively, but I think while his goal is to win the Tour de France this is the best preparation. If the goal shifts from that then Tour Down Under may figure again.” Cadel Evans had participated in the 2010 Tour Down Under and had lived up to the expectations of his fans but that did not lure him to get on track for the next two years in a row.

Currently Cadel Evans is eyeing the Tour de France and would train his heart put to give his best on the mountainous track of the tour. News is that the track is going to be harder and more mountainous than usual. In order to get his best preparation he cannot afford to get himself distracted with the other racing tracks.

Hence he is leaving it all up to the current world road champion Philippe Gilbert, his fellow teammate to go for the Tour down South in Adelaide. Gilbert is experienced with this race type back in 2004 where he finished fourth. Now expectations of both of their fans are bound to soar up.
