LIEGE: Australia’s Cadel Evans has consigned the happy memories of his maiden Tour de France triumph to the history books as he prepares to defend his title today. “It’s satisfying to think that we did it in 2011. But that’s history now, and we’re looking to ultimately repeat it this year,” said Evans. “I’ve had a quiet start to the 2012 season, but that’s okay. I’ve got a lot of racing to come and it’s been a good few months leading into here. I’ve avoided health problems and so we are ready. We look forward to the race and a good battle over the next three weeks.”
