With eighth place in the concluding individual time trial, BMC Racing Team Captain Cadel Evans ends the Critérium International sixth in the general classification.


The two day-race, which has been held since 1932, is traditionally run in three stages The first section (75 km) early on Sunday morning was decided in the sprint, with Russell [HL1]Downing coming out on top. Cadel Evans was best of the BMC Racing Team's riders, taking eleventh place. In the afternoon it was time for the concluding individual time trials. For Cadel Evans this was the first time trial of the new season. "It wasn't good and it wasn't bad,” was the verdict of the reigning road World Champion after the 7.7 kilometers in Porto-Vecchio. "It's the first time I've competed on the new TT01 bike and it will take me a little more time to get used to all the new features. But it’s coming along nicely," said the Australian with conviction. David Millar was the fastest in the time trial. The overall winner of this year's Critérium International was Frenchman Pierrick Fedrigo.
