What do you think? He's racing at the front pretty well this week. Do you think he's going to hang in there?

I always thought it was better going into a GT a little off peak condition.

He may not have form, but if the main contenders don't watch it, they will be looking at the back of Evans' jersey. He's not a favorite of mine, but he is doing all that a serious GC contender does.

He knows how to race for gc extremely well. With Wiggins on the ropes, I would expect him to come out swinging from here on out.

Wiggins is not looking sharp is he. You get stuck behind a crash once, maybe bad luck. Twice? Hmmm, then he goes down and you strat to wonder if he's not quite up to it. Tomorrow will be interesting.

Evans was not present on Stage 3 when Ryder was attacking. All the GC guys were with Ryder and Evans was MIA. Not a good sign. Since then, he has been more attentive, but I wouldn't count on him being a factor for the overall.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Today Evans was on, as in bringing itv in the end. I think he's here to play

OK, place your bets here. Odds for win, place or show. I'll give 3:1 only for show.

The thing Evans cannot do is match Nibali's acceleration on a mountain climb. I expect Nibali to put real time into Evans at least once come the last week. But Evans doing nothing stupid and being there the rest of the time? Wouldn't surprise me at all. Anyone who makes a mistake or has a bad day will finish behind him.

Cosmic, Ryder has been on fire. Evans starting a GC a little off his best? Maybe not dumb. So he lost a few seconds on Stage 3. THere are still two weeks.

Well, tomorrow's the TT, so we'll find out who brought their A game!

I'd say yes after today's TT.

He will come unhitched on the first real mountain stage. He has grit but he still isn't firing on all cylinders

Evans definitely looks like he is back and ready for business. Good article here on Velonation that discusses this topic at:

maybe not the first mtn stage, but i agree he'll come unhitched.

I don't know if he will come "unhitched" which to me means blowing up but I think there will be an acceleration he will not be able to match and he will lose real time at least once in the final week.
