“Of course, I am not satisfied with the result. Maybe in time I will be able to appreciate the effort we made and how we rode as a team — we rode very, very well," Evans says

Cadel Evans arrived at the Giro d'Italia with the goal of winning the race overall and led the race early before fading in the final week. Despite claiming that he has no regrets, he admits that he is not satisfied with the results and now ponders his future.


BMC Racing Team's Cadel Evans finished eighth overall Sunday at the Giro d'Italia after teammate Daniel Oss made a bid for the stage win in the last kilometers of the three-week race. Oss charged out of the peloton after the final climb on the circuit in Trieste but was reeled in with a kilometer to go of the 172-km race as Luka Mezgec (Team Giant-Shimano) took the stage win.


Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) won the overall, 12:00 ahead of Evans and by 2:58 over runner-up Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) and 4:04 over third-placed Fabio Aru (Astana Pro Team).


Evans said while his performance fell short of his expectations, he was grateful for the support he received.


"In the end, we rode exceptionally well as a team," he said. "I lacked it in the mountains against my competitors, but that is something to reflect on in the near future. Most of all, I gave it my best, so I am not going to have any regrets.


“Of course, I am not satisfied with the result. Maybe in time I will be able to appreciate the effort we made and how we rode as a team — we rode very, very well. We rode far beyond what I had hoped for and the results in the first 10 days were indicative of that.


“Of course, when we got into the third week with the mountains and that it was a different story. But that’s the way it goes.


“Certainly, and for that reason, being able to prepare and to give everything here was so important. You have to look at things, but like I said, I’m not going to make any rash decisions [bout my future]."


Evans took the overall lead on Stage 8 and held it until Uran won the individual time trial on Stage 12. Evans has finished in the top 10 in 11 of 16 grand tours he has completed (of 17 started), with a victory in the 2011 Tour de France. Three of his top 10 finishes at grand tours have come at the Giro: eighth this year, third in 2013 and 5th in 2010.
