Elfyn Evans heads into this weekend’s Tour of Corsica with a lot of confidence. It’s the event where he led a round of the FIA World Rally Championship for the first time, he’s always gone well there and it follows a podium finish in Mexico. At long last, things are most certainly looking up! Corsica is one of the most technical rounds of the WRC, as road condition and surface temperature change as the long stages twist and turn there way around the mountainous Mediterranean island. The event has a long history in the sport, and it’s gained the nickname of The Rally of 10,000 Corners for good reason. Maybe it’s driving the legendary Welsh rural mountain roads, like the Abergwesyn Pass, in his youth that has fine-tuned Evans’ asphalt driving technique, but whatever it is the 30-year old from Dolgellau has always been on top form in Corsica – finishing a career best second in 2015.

The winger’s value is rising steeply after Premier League clubs were given more evidence of his talent when he struck a superb winner as Wales opened their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win over Slovakia in Cardiff on Sunday.
