Evenepoel gets tired: "Stop comparing me now, please!"

The Belgian cyclist criticized in social networks the comparisons he has received since he was a professional. "Nobody can be a new version of something that has not been."


Remco Evenepoel wanted to send a message to all those who compare his sporting career with that of other cycling figures, most of them with the Belgian Eddy Merckx, as a result of his precociousness and the numerous successes achieved in the peloton despite having just 20 years.

The Deceuninck Quick-Step cyclist, who is recovering from the broken pelvis he suffered during the last Tour of Lombardy after falling off an embankment, wrote this forceful message on his Twitter account. "Please stop comparing me! I am not like anyone else and no one is like me. We are all ourselves and should be respected. So please stop. No one can be a new version of something they have never been and never have been. It will be. Thank you ".

Several Belgian runners such as Laurens de Vreese or Thomas de Gendt joked with Evenepoel's tweet ("Why is there no one like me?" Wrote the Belgian from Astana). However, the Belgian responded to a user who had written "Well done, new Merckx", with a resounding "Stupid". Remco Evenepoel wants to continue making a name for himself in cycling and, for the moment, he does not want comparisons with anyone.
