Evans Withdraws From Tirreno-Adriatico
logo bmc Cadel Evans of the BMC Racing Team withdrew from Tirreno-Adriatico Tuesday, foregoing the final stage, 9.2-kilometer individual time trial in order to return home and resume training for his goal race, the Giro d’Italia.

Results Short Of Expectations
“Obviously, my results are not anywhere near my expectations or intentions coming here,” Evans said. “It is disappointing because we obviously worked a lot and I worked to continue the momentum that we started at the Tour Down Under. But obviously, the results tell a different story. So I will have to go home and reassess the situation and start again toward the next goals.” Evans’s best result of the race came on the opening stage last Wednesday when the BMC Racing Team placed 11th in the team time trial. His season started with runner-up finishes in January at both the Australian national road championships and the Santos Tour Down Under. Last month, he scored a pair of top 10 results at the Tour du Haut Var on the way to fifth place overall and was seventh at Strade Bianche on March 8. Last year’s third-place finisher at the Giro d’Italia said Tirreno-Adriatico was not entirely disappointing. He said the six stages he did complete provided “a very good workload” and the time spent racing with teammates built familiarity with some who will join him at the Giro. Evans is scheduled to next compete at Vuelta al Pais Vasco, April 7-12. “Unfortunately things aren’t going well,” the past Tour de France and world road champion said. “That’s the way it goes. We have ups and downs. That’s life.”
