Report: Evans to skip Tour Down Under again

Updated: October 04, 2011, 18:20

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) Tour de France champion Cadel Evans reportedly will skip the Tour Down Under to improve his chances of winning three top titles next year.

Evans has an ambitious goal of defending his Tour title, winning a second world championship and earning an Olympic gold medal in the same year.

Evans was quoted by The Adelaide Advertiser as saying January's Tour Down Under is "not a good fit'' for a Tour de France contender.

"I have a lot of expectations coming later in the season, so anything that compromises my performance there is not something I can consider.''
