Cadel Evans gains time as the weather leaves its mark

Cadel Evans, Tour de France 2011, stage 10

Cadel Evans moved one position up the Tour de France general classification today with an excellent ride over the second category Col du Manse. The Australian, who started the day in third place, made it across to Alberto Contador on the climb and then dropped him on the wet descent.

His ride saw him leapfrog Frank Schleck in to second place overall after the Leopard-Trek rider finished in a small group nine seconds back.
