Twice runner-up and perennial underdog, Cadel Evans (BMC) comes to the 2011 Tour de France off one of his most decorated seasons. Criticised for taking on too many races in the past the Australian chose to not ride the Giro d'Italia and has instead focused on riding a much lighter schedule.

That decision appears to have paid off and after taking top honours at Tirreno-Adriatico, and winning his second Tour de Romandie title in May, the former world champion looks ready to pose his strongest Tour challenge since 2007.

BMC also look to be stronger in 2011 and after seven stages Evans is looking a very real threat to Alberto Contador's Tour de France defence.
