Cadel Evans

Evans finished second in the 2007 Tour, between Contador and third-placed Leipheimer. With those two out of the race last year, he started as the overall favorite and wore yellow for several stages. But a strong showing in the mountains by Sastre and an uncharacteristically average performance from Evans in the final time trial saw him finish as runner-up again. His team isn't the strongest, but look for him to be in the mix.
