Cyclist Evans aiming at both Tour and 2012 Olympic
Sint-Niklaas, Belgium: Australian Tour de France champion Cadel Evans hopes to do well at next year`s London Olympics as well as successfully defend his title.
Evans, who took part in a 90.3 kms race through the historic city centre of Sint Niklaas on Friday said, he thought he could manage both events, even though they fall within weeks of each other.
"At this point in time, we are working towards the Tour de France in 2012," Evans, 34, said.
"Conveniently or inconveniently, depending which way you look at it and for me in the past it has been fine, we go to the Olympics just after the Tour de France in 2012.”
"At this point we are planning to be competitive at both. Where it goes on with selections and so on, directions and team mates, it`s not up to me right now but we will be there."
Evans, the first Australian to win the Tour de France which finished last Sunday, added: "It brings more, more attention than any other race or success I had before."
"Now that it has happened I don`t know if I can quite realise it yet. It`s certainly one thing, one box I had unticked."
