Evans looking good at Tour de Carnage

With his self-confidence at an all-time high and luck finally on his side, Australia's Cadel Evans could achieve something special on this year's Tour de France.
Evans, a two-time Tour de France runner-up, has survived a crash-marred first week of racing which saw several contenders bow out of the race. He now stands third in the overall standings, the best placing among the favorites.
The BMC team leader finished behind Alberto Contador in 2007 while Carlos Sastre beat him in 2008. Last year, he wore the yellow jersey but broke his left elbow and had to be content with a 26th-place finish on the Champs Elysees.
Evans, seen as an underachiever until he became world champion in 2009, looks stronger this year.
