Cadel Evans is devastated regarding his massacre performance in the latest Tour de France and has declared to meet up with his team management shortly. The distinguished American rider is soon to sit in a consultation with BMC management regarding the upcoming Grand Tours.
The leading BMC rider who had a celebrated win in Tour de France in 2011 seemingly disappointed all his fans this time with a mere 39th overall position in the 2013 France Tour. The thirty-six year old rider is frustrated with his own performance which is giving him second thoughts on sticking on as BMC Tour leader. “I need to meet up with the team & so on…..(regarding) what the team management desires to focus on”, Evans stated post the Tour de France at the end of July. There were speculations that young American rider Tejay Garderen would succeed as the BMC Tour leader replacing Evans from this year, especially after Garderen (24) bagged the honorary title of best young rider in the 2012 Tour. However, BMC management has always stressed upon the fact that presently they don’t want anybody else other than Evans to don the hat of Tour Leader in the team.
Despite BMC’s constant emphasis on Evans as the Tour leader, Evans seems little apprehensive about his deserved status in the team post the horror of Tour de France. “The France Tour isn’t something that you would be able to win on all by yourself. We would see what the team management plans & see whether BMC is confident enough in me & so on. I am trying hard to move on and presently I require good support from many to help me in my testing phase. It’s not a very good time for me to dwell on the past issues”, commented Evans while discussing about his decision to meet up with BMC management.
