Re: 2011 Tour de France

Evans isn't a cuddly bloke, he's got a bit of mongrel in him. Glad to see that Contador didn't pip him after the problems Evans had in the final 20 km, including have to switch out his bike and then get through a big group, in tight roads and back to the front. It was also probably the best result as he didn't end up having to be burdened with the yellow jersey so early.

But you can't overlook Thor effort to not give up any time as well. It wasn't a huge climb but to stay with the big guns in the end is no mean feat.


Stage 5, a bit of up and down over the day, but nothing major.
