Cadel Evans reacts to EPIC stage 5 of the Tour de France | ITV SportJul 06, 2023
uh this guy was enjoying it too he's still the only Australian to have won the Tour de France let's not anoint Jai Hindley but what a ride today oh my god wow that was really impressive and excuse my emotions a little, but um, the whole
stageand looking generally not just not just a Jai but as expected, the
tourwas completely unexpected, but Jai was just calm and level-headed, we didn't seem that way until it really mattered and look what he got brought, yeah, and um, how people might be asking at home. a man who is the winner of the Giro last year, you know, one of the favorites, how is he allowed to get to the rest of the day?
One asks, when he asked me why, as you say when you come to the Tour de France. as a
tourwinner and you don't just know a flash in the pan he is a consistent rider how do you allow him to take a break in the first Real Mountain
stageof the mess fans and I think it comes down to the fact that jumbo visits visma? and the Emirates team from the United Arab Emirates are so focused on each other and there is a lot to control in that first part of the cycle race, we have seen 17 guys take the break, so there are a limited number of riders to the ones you can observe and everything reduced. to that fight really and going back to how Pagacha got on the tour and how he ran the first three days, I'm not really sure if that's the way he likes to race or if he was actually quite afraid of what the vinegar would do. do it.
On today's stage, on tomorrow's stage, I really needed to fight for those extra seconds to give it that kind of cushion going into the right mountains, yeah, well, I mean, let's look at the vinegar race because obviously that It was the other great story of the stage. day um when he did pogacha we didn't know if at first he was just getting high or he couldn't get in but we soon found out he couldn't it was okay this is the first glimpse of Poker car not or pogica being human every time I see him he
reactsto everything and sometimes he over
reactsto everything, but in this case we quickly saw a one-minute deficit at this point in the tour is certainly anything but what he wanted.
How worried are you about Joe Hinley? Yeah, I mean, of course, we have to look at the giant and, yeah, in the state today also really, yeah, during the scenario, we're really thinking, should we also put a guy at the front door or not, or yes, and then I decided no because being on break requires a lot of energy and yes, of course, we also have to think about Jai. Was that a super day for you or just a normal day for years when you were gone? Oh, I think so. I had a super good day, yes, I try to thank you, okay, thanks, let's go back to Pogacho Cadell. um, you know, Pete was talking about everything he did in the spring and if he was doing too much, um, but last year he took everything. team jumbo visma tag team with him constantly tiring him out to get rid of him today he was there he was there until he wasn't and it really seemed like he had this break and he had this break and I thought, well this is it's going to be a good break after the great season he's had, but as you pointed out, when the vinegar card came out he was out of the chair and attacked while Pogba just sat there, it meant he was probably empty I guess or guess.
It may not be cold, but we've had a change from a warm climate to a much colder climate, sometimes that affects your eating and eating, but he really had nothing to react to. What do we think the first summit will end tomorrow? um Jai hindley. You're going to have to defend yourself, yeah, I think that's okay, chase just listening to your interview there, possibly the more luxurious days, the luxurious days take quite a while in terms of your reaction, I think you've come to grips with that, I think you still has tried it, but tomorrow in the stage you will have plenty of time to do that, but he will certainly have a lot of work ahead of him hmm um, will the vinegar go after him tomorrow or you know, it will be a more reserved stage and they?
Just you know, play it by ear and take it to the first day off. I mean, if he were finnego and jomovisma, he would try to finish that show tomorrow with the scenario we have, you know. We can't stop, he doesn't have time to recover his thoughts, but I have you. Tomorrow we will go straight back to the long, sustained rallies and we are looking at the facts. Now it was called the pomegranate last year where the vinegar finished off the bagacha and now anything is finished. 20 minutes of vinegar is just I would say a step ahead of what pogacho can do in terms of power and its capabilities and and quickly before we fall out of the air um
cadell we have completely ignored Julia Tricona, you know who looked good ? in the, you know, the jury would have looked good if it wasn't for kovid and it looks pretty good here, it looks very solid, but then yeah, we've seen this poker car that's not in the place where it needs to be and such time.
There is someone who is going to hit someone at this point, it seems that the cars probably won't be able to make it to the podium well.
