Did they give it away to him?movingtarget said:Yes I get the feeling that Evans is only being mentioned simply because he won the 2011 Tour but the reality is nobody expects him to win and many don't expect him to podium. But the so called Contador/ Froome match race could also be much more complicated than that. No teams will want to see Sky dictate the race like last year so it could be very tactical with many teams using their best domestques like Quintana, Moreno, Kreuziger etc. to put pressure on other teams to chase. Everyone remembers what happened with Pereiro in 2006. This could expose the weaker teams and the third week could have a lot of very tired riders including some of the GC contenders.
Is it not a enought motive to be mentioned?
There are a lot of people that could win this Tour, and Evans among them. Imo I think he will finish better than Contador.
