They didn’t destroy him in the Pyrenees and couldn’t kill him in the Alps of the Tour de France.
So the Brothers Schleck have decided to wait one month, rest up, re-think some strategy and then attack Evans in the high mountains again. This time it’s the Colorado Rockies.
Yes, it’s the Tour de France mountain duel, transplanted to the high mountains of Colorado and the US ProCycling Challenge. Both Schlecks are set to race and Evans has announced he will also ride the race. Yee-haw!
The Schlecks plan to beat Evans in the mountains and if it happens to be the Rockies and not the French Alps, then so be it. If they fail in the Rockies, they plan to challenge Evans to a duel in the Himalayas.
The Pyrenees were not high enough in altitude, the Alps were higher but the Rockies, at over two miles up in the sky, may prove decisive for the Schlecks.
One way of another, they will break Evans, crush his spirit, reduce him to an exhausted, sobbing child. No matter how many mountains, how may countries and how many races it takes.
