Evans: Last big test before the tour

By Shane Stokes

The last time Cadel Evans raced in Switzerland he scorched to a welcome but somewhat unexpected victory, coming from 28 seconds back to dominate the final time trial and the snatch the overall win in the Tour de Romandie.

When Cyclingnews spoke to him prior to the race start in Baden, he wasn't saying a whole lot about his goals here. Even if we've a hunch he'll try something when the race moves into the mountains, he steered clear of any talk of going for the overall.

"I am feeling pretty good – we will see," he stated. "I will play things by ear and see how things go. I have no big expectations or anything. I rode well in the Tour de Romandie but it is a while ago now. I backed off and I am starting to build back up again now. I did the Tour of Catalunya and now this is the last big test before the Tour."
