Finishing 7th overall in Paris-Nice, Cadel Evans was one of the most active riders in the four last hilly stages of the race. "I'm happy with my condition," he commented. "But the race did not go quite as well as I would have liked. I've tried to get a better result but it didn't work. It's still early in the season though. I'm not desperate for winning yet."
Evans' fifth place at the Tour de France last year has definitely put him on the list of the contenders for the podium. "I plan to be at my best at the end of April and in July, that's what I'm on the team for", he added. The way they ride with Chris Horner taking the responsibilities of the pace in the hills, Predictor-Lotto have big ambitions for the former mountain biker this year.
