Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team) had to give up against Ivan Basso (Liquigas-Doimo) in Monte Zoncolan. But after a day of rest in the body was ready to challenge the Australian Italian in Plan de Corones. And as he did so. “Giro lives very much.

He began it nearly 13 kilometers long mountain tempo of terrible speed and also led in the meantime after 7.6 kilometres by four seconds over Michele Scarponi (Androni Giocattoli) and 18 seconds ahead of Ivan Basso on the fourth.

The last part of the climb that remained were the steepest. It was Stefano Garzelli (Acqua & Sapone) ran away from all the margin. Although Cadel Evans dropped on Garzelli, he continued to extend the lead to Ivan Basso, who was 28 seconds behind the world champion. In summary, this means that now separates 42 seconds between the two favorites.

“I started really well, which is unusual for me but then I lost a little bit in the middle. I think I ran better when it was gravel and I took time on my rivals in the abstract. I used my strength to clear gravel sections. I didn’t have the legs in the Monte Zoncoan but today I took out everything I had on the road. Now, I will analyze the results in detail and see exactly where we are, “said the world champion.
