I used to find Cadel Evans I dunno, boring, or lacking some spark which would excite you in any way. He was the nearly man who "always follows" and "never attacks". I must say though that since last years TdF when the TTT destroyed any chance he had (wouldn't beat Contador or Schleck anyway) I discovered a new found fondness for the Australian. This year it seems the Worlds jersey has given him a renewed vigor and his battling qualities (a quality I always admire - the underdog, the man all on his own who won't go away) have been great to watch. His fighting spirit in the Giro has suddenly had me up out of couch and willing him on when he has been dropped on the climbs by the machine that is Liquigas. This thread isn't a do you like Evans or not like him, but to see if anyone else has found themselves with a new found fondness for the man. Chapeau Cadel - you've got a new fan here.
