Evans has finalised his plans for the balance of this year and will be a definite starter when the Supercross troupe hits WIN Stadium. Evans ‰ÛÒ 10th in the official 2005 US rankings ‰ÛÒ will spearhead the Motorex KTM lineup which includes local hope Ryan Marmont, who calls Towradgi home, and Victorian Lee Ellis. Evans has been in the wars since he commenced his Australian season back in July at Brisbane Entertainment Centre. He has failed to adapt to the more compact indoor track layouts; he has been the obvious victim of jet lag -- commuting from Los Angeles to Australia between rounds; and he sustained a crippling knee injury prior to the Adelaide round. As well he fell foul of the local officials in Sydney three weeks ago when they confronted him over a minor rule infraction. The knee damage has come good without the expected surgery but Evans has stood down from this week's penultimate round at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena. Evans and KTM team manager Rob Twyerould discussed Melbourne and the daunting aspect of the tight confines of Centre Court flavoured their decision-making. "Tyler went silent when I told him the dimensions ‰ÛÒ he's never dreamt of a track so small," said Twyerould. "His record is very impressive. But he's a big man and needs a big man's track. "So WIN Stadium will be perfect and he honestly expects to do well. We agree. "He has had many successful encounters in the 'States with Craig Anderson and Daryl Hurley. And they have dominated racing here this season. "Our American guest believes the small tracks thus far have bamboozled him." Twyerould concluded.
