Evans: the most amount of suffering I've ever been through

First time Tour rider Cadel Evans finished 16th on today's stage, 8'47 behind George Hincapie. He started the day 12th overall and improved a place in the general classification, inching ever closer to a slot in the top ten. Indeed that would have been possible today had he succeeded in taking time out of Christophe Moreau.

"It was real hard out there," he told Cyclingnews' John Trevorrow. "I'm just a bit disappointed that Moreau came back. He has been suffering like hell over the past few days, suffering and suffering and suffering."
