BMC Racing Team’s Cadel Evans and Taylor Phinney participated in Thursday’s official pre-race press conference for the Giro d’Italia. The two will be joined by teammates Adam Blythe, Steve Cummings, Klaas Lodewyck, Steve Morabito, Daniel Oss, Ivan Santaromita and Danilo Wyss in the three-week race, which begins Saturday.
Evans spoke about his outlook for his return to the race for the first time since 2010, when he won the points classification and led the race for one day. Phinney, who won Stage 1 last year and wore the leader’s maglia rosa jersey through Stage 4, commented about his prospects for winning another stage and the importance of the Stage 2 team time trial.
