Cadel Evans will be back on the track this year after an absence of 9 long years. He is to appear in the Australian road cycling championships which is due to start on Sunday. The national team was ecstatic to hear that Evans has registered himself for the upcoming as it was somewhat unexpected. This would be a real boost for both Evans and the team.
However Evans has also said that since there was such a long gap in between there can be last minute changes but everyone is positive that he will be racing from this year. The preparations have already started for Evans and according to reports the man is in very good shape and he looks hungrier than ever. In an interview just after the decision was made Evans said that he is not only looking forward to the Australian championship but also for the Giro d Italia. The training and the practice sessions he has undergone so far for the season opening shows that he will be back with some great form.
The former Tour de France winner said that he will not be participating in the Tour de France this year because the distance will be too long for him and he has not reached that level of fitness yet. On a brighter note he is sternly focused on the Australian road cycling championships and Giro d Italia and also Adelaide’s Tour Down Under.
The manager of Evans is pretty hopeful with him and said that he has been training very hard and the preparations are in perfect shape. He is confident about Evans saying that the Tour de France winner will emerge as the champion this season. The opening of the season would decide what Evans will do rest of the season.

Robbie McEwen, the cycling legend from Australia has declared that Michael Rogers the banned compatriot is innocent and has also appealed to the UCI to stop their racing in China. McEwen has put his reputation on the line and said that it was rather “impossible to believe” that Michael Rogers had been involved in the doping case deliberately. The legend has had many successes in his career with three green jerseys for being the best sprinter and not to forget the 12 stage wins in the very prestigious Tour de France.
Rogers allegedly has been allegedly found with clenbuterol and for that he has been suspended provisionally by the UCI. This was found in sample of urine that was taken just after he won in Japan on the 20th of October. In his defense Rogers said that he had been eating contaminated food for some days when he had gone for the Tour of Beijing in China. This was a country where clenbuterol has been known to be used in the livestock and that must have been got into his urine and caused so much of trouble.
Robbie McEwen is confident that Rogers is innocent and he is sure that he is telling the truth. He also added to his defense saying that Michael is in a very good position and he would never even think of doing such a thing. His financial position was also good and doing such a thing will be utterly foolish for him and he always refrained from doing such things. If he had to do such a thing then he could have done it years back. Coming to such a position and doing this is totally not acceptable and Rogers doing this is out of the question for him.
