June 21, 2015 (13:00) [ Indexed from ]
The race for overall victory in this years Tour de France is billed as a four-way fight between Vincenzo Nibali, Alberto Contador, Nairo Quintana and Chris Froome. Who will win is a question that will only be answered when the three-week Tour finishes on the Champs Elysees in Paris on Sunday, July 26. However, the debate over who will do what, has been running for months as riders compete during the 2015 season. Cyclingnews has spoken to Cadel Evans -the first Australian to win the Tour de France in 2011, about the Big Four and how he saw their strengths and challenges for the Tour that starts in Utrecht, the Netherlands on July 4.ADVERTISEMENT Who is Evans' pick for the podium?Nibali, Quintana and Froome. Im not saying in which order though, Evans replied, edging his bets. VINCENZO NIBALI, 30, (Italy/Astana): Winner of 2015 Tour de France, 2013 Giro dItalia and 2010 Vuelta a Espana; 2nd in 2013 Vuelta and 3rd in 2012 Tour de France Best 2015 season results: 12th overall - Criterium du Dauphine, including 2nd in stage 3 team time trial and 2nd in stage 6 to Villard de Lans; 10th overall - Tour de Romandie, including 9th stage 5 to Champex-Lac; 13th Liege-Bastogne-Liege You can read more at More...
Cadel Evans: Porte deserves leadership role at Giro d'Italia
April 14, 2015 (04:45) [ Indexed from ]
Cadel Evans believes Richie Porte has earned his role as Team Sky's leader for Giro dItalia and that the fellow Australian deserves to start as one of the favourites. The one concern that the retired 2011 Tour de France champion has of what 30-year-old Porte can do in the Giro is if he will have enough in the tank after a solid five months racing block, preceded by a long and hard pre-season of training. Speaking to Cyclingnews after he attended the Tour of Flanders for the first time " as a spectator and rider " Evans otherwise had nothing but praise for Porte.ADVERTISEMENT He cited Portes wins in the Australian time trial title, second place overall and victory in the Old Willunga Hill stage of the Tour Down Under and wins in Paris-Nice and the Volta a Catalunya as his principal achievements so far this season. Porte was also fourth overall in the Vuelta ao Algarve in which he also won a stage. Hes had a fantastic start to the year. His performance at the time trial in the national championships and Tour Down Under showed he was right there, Evans told Cyclingnews. With the way the [national title] road race panned out for us favourites, he wasnt able to show what he had. But he got to show that at the Tour Down Under on the second last stage [that finished on Old Willunga Hill] and then built on that at Paris-Nice and Catalunya. Its a great sign and obviously he is going better than he did last year. My only concern is [whether] he has done too much too early. You can read more at More...
Dominant Tour de Perth display from CharterMason-Giant a sign of things to come
April 03, 2015 (03:45) [ Indexed from ]
At the end of 2014, Melbourne-based National Road Series (NRS) team CharterMason Giant announced it would be racing under a Continental licence for the upcoming season. The upgrade afforded the team a start at the inaugural Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race as well as a start at Australias other UCI event, the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in February. While results werent forthcoming at the UCI events, it was to be expected due to the fact that the team was still forming its nucleus, the team showed themselves in breakaways and at the front of the peloton. Only months previously, riders were riding for themselves, unsure of how to ride as a team. The first race of the 2015 NRS calendar, the Tour de Perth, had a different feel from previous editions with a twilight prologue replacing the opening criterium. Having occupied the hot seat before finishing ninth at the Sun Tour prologue, former mountain bike eliminator world champion Paul van der Ploeg duly delivered on his favourite status for the win.ADVERTISEMENT "Going in we always knew that we were a chance in the prologue having Paul there just with his eliminator background which is a very similar type event," the teams sports director Damien Harris told Cyclingnews. "I thought it was a good opportunity to get the yellow jersey early and to give the team a good boost right from the get go with the first stage of the tour, and stage of the NRS as well. That went to plan which was perfect." While the team lost the yellow jersey the next day, German sprinter Raphael Freienstein made it two from two with victory in the bunch sprint finish. "We always knew we might be about to hold onto the jersey for another day in Perry Lakes with the circuit there finishing in a bunch kick," Harris added. "As it happened, the race was all split up and we had three guys in the front group which was good. Obviously Raph ended up winning the stage and if there had been time bonuses, then he would have been in yellow but thats just the way it is." You can read more at More...
Evans in top 50 highest paid Australian sportspeople list
February 18, 2015 (11:15) [ Indexed from ]
New professional cyclist Caleb Ewan has been flagged as one "to watch" as a contender for Australia's list of highest paid sports stars by the Fairfax Media site ('Business Review Weekly') in its Top 50 sports earners for last year. In the latest list, the only cyclist who made the top 50 was 2011 Tour de France champion Cadel Evans (BMC) who retired at age 37 after placing fifth in the his eponymous Great Ocean Road Race at Geelong, Victoria in Australia on February 1. had Evans pegged 23rd from the 50 athletes whose accumulated earnings for the year were AUD164 million and "included on-field and endorsements earnings".ADVERTISEMENT Evans, estimated as having earned AUD2.5 million last year, was the only cyclist in the top 50. However, 20-year-old Ewan, who is in his first year as a professional with the Orica-GreenEdge team, was named as among "ones to watch for" as those Australian athletes who are "set for big paydays" in the years to come. With Ewan are Nick Kyrgios (tennis) who made the quarter-finals at the Australian Open, Minjee Lee (golf) who at age 18 is already the 68th best female player in the world; Tyler Wright (surfing) who is set to break the $1 million earnings mark, and Massimo Luongo (soccer) who starred for the Socceroos in their Asian Cup victory.
