Cadel Evans out of Olympic Time Trial and Fabian Cancellara Doubtful

The 2011 Tour de France champion, Cadel Evans has withdrawn from the London 2012 Olympic time trial while Switzerland’s Fabian Cancellara will have to undergo a medical check before deciding whether or not to start Wednesday’s cycling event at Hampton court. 

Evans was struggled with fitness throughout the mens time trial at the weekend and has announced that he will be too tired to compete in the event on Wednesday following an unspecified illness.

Calcellara, who looked like one of the stronger riders in the time trial event, lost control of his bike on a sharp corner and crashed in to the railings.

Despite remounting and finishing the race the rider came in at 79th and looked to be suffering from an injury to the collar bone. 

“Happy nothing is broken but the pain will be on! For the time trial nothing is sure yet,” he said to his followers on the social networking website, Twitter. 

“Have no words left. The tears are stronger than the pain.”

The Swiss rider broke his collar bone in the Tour of Flanders in early April but quickly regained form in time for the Tour de France where he won the opening prologue time trial and led the race until British cyclist Bradley Wiggins found his form.
