Cadel Evans, Giro d'Italia 2010, stage 3

Australian Cadel Evans faced a difficult time in the Giro d'Italia's final stage in the Netherlands on Monday. He started out the day in the leader's pink jersey, but found himself isolated and forced to chase solo after being stuck behind a crash with Sky's Bradley Wiggins.

Evans, without a BMC Racing team-mate, lost 46 seconds to a group with Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana), who took the leader's pink jersey.
