I have to admit, I am becoming a Cadel Evans fan.

    Never much cared for the guy the past few years, but he has been showing great form and is wearing and representing the National Champion's Jersey with class!

    If he would just trim those eyebrows.

    Was it intentionally or by mistake?
    Whatever... He's wearing it like it should be worn.

    Funny, I thought it was the World Champions jersey...
    ... either that or he's batting for the home team.

    he rose in my estimation when he started selling "don't step on my dog" t-shirts. it's the voice, though. he needs to let his missus do the interviews.

    World championships, Flech Wallone, his giro stage win. All class results. And if he can produce some form on the really steep mountains in the Giro's last week he could be looking at his first GT win. Getting better with age perhaps? He's a much more interesting rider than he used to be as well, he attacks so much more!

    I like CE : he's always ridden his heart out in any race I have watched him in.
    OK, he can come across as abrupt sometimes but after a race a rider can be tired and pissed off.

    The way he has ridden wearing the world champions jersey has been great for the sport.

    One of the good guys I think.

    (I agree about his eyebrows, though:p)

    Nothing wrong with the eyebrows... they worked for Groucho Marx.

    I'm gonna have to get one of those t-shirts!!!

    Cadel has gone up in my book as well. He seems more aggressive, maybe more confident. The voice is pretty nasally, almost sounds like he has a deviated septum sometimes.

    You don't laugh at Cadel in his post-race interviews?

    Last night

    Who was the rider that tried to pretend to pull the chase in front of Cadel...but was just slowing it down and then the wrists slapping fisti cuffs started?

    I thought Cadel was going to crash tackle him...

    Cadel pushed first but he had a right too...

    :eek:

    I saw that on a news report this morning, old Cadel seems to be getting pretty aggressive these days. :confused:

    This is very lucky for Evans cause that fist almost took the Lampre riders head off :eek: If he timed it right it may have been a season ending mistake.
