Tour de France, Stage 6: Looking Ahead

Cadel Evans of the BMC Racing Team said his recovery from two long,
hot stages will determine what happens this weekend as the Tour de
France hits the mountains.

Evans Still Third Overall
Saturday’s 165-kilometer race features six climbs in the Alps. Evans
finished 22nd Friday as Mark Cavendish (HTC-Columbia) won his second
bunch sprint. “I’m quite tired, but tomorrow is a new race,” Evans
said. “Everything is going to start to change around tomorrow and
Sunday is going to be a real shuffle-up going into the Pyrenees.” The
world champion said Fabian Cancellara (Team Saxo Bank) might keep his
overall lead another day. “I imagine if he’s motivated by that,” Evans
said. “It depends on what the other teams want to do and if they want
to eliminate him. I think Cancellara has the better chance of making
it than Geraint Thomas, in reality.”
