Cadel Evans became daddy few months ago and now he is happy to be with his family after ending a premature season because of illness. The BMC cyclist was the winner of the 2012 Tour de France but this year he struggled throughout the Tour and finished at the seventh spot.
Evans competed in the London Olympics 2012 at the road race and secured 80th place. But then he pulled of the time trial. He even had to quit from the UCI Road World Championship. Evans went through a difficult time this year as he failed to defend his titles in Tirreno-Adriatico and Tour de Romandie. In spite of not being fully fit he managed to win the Criterium du Dauphine. Though he suffered due to a fitness problem, which was declared as a viral attack Cadel Evans managed to rank among the top 10 for 19 times this season, showing that his consistency hasn’t left him yet.
Now Evans’ main aim is to go back to his 100% and do his best in the next season. He will go through a blood test within a few days to be aware of his current condition. Max Testa, the Chief Medical Officer of BMC Medical Team has reported that Evans will start his winter training after knowing the reports of the blood test. Evans himself stated that he would like to start his practice as early as possible, but with the medical team’s permission.
Cadel Evans, the 35-year-old cyclist, earlier stated that he didn’t want to take the risk of participating in events after knowing that he had a viral attack. Now he aims to come back as soon as he can and make sure that he continues to be in his full form in the upcoming season. He also stated that he has been enjoying every moments with his family now.
