Evenepoel, unstoppable: San Juan, Algarve, Burgos and now Poland

The Belgian, who has contested four stage races in 2020, has won all of them. On the last day in Poland, his teammate Ballerini triumphed at the sprint.

The Tour of Poland started last Wednesday with the terrible loss in the Deceuninck of Fabio Jakobsen, who despite being declared the winner of the stage after the fall caused by Groenewegen in the sprint, ended up in the hospital, where he is currently recovering favorably from the serious injuries that led to an induced coma and will have a long recovery time ahead of him.

The Belgian team honored its rider in the best way this Sunday: stage victory for Davide Ballerini in the fifth and final stage after surprising the sprint and overall for Remco Evenepoel, who had no problems confirming his victory after the exhibition that the Saturday. In this way, the 20-year-old Belgian talent counts all his stage races played in 2020 for victory: Tour of the Algarve, San Juan, Burgos and now in Poland. Deceuninck also continues to shine: 23 wins this season with a stoppage included.

On the last day, which ended with a circuit through the streets of Krakow ideal for sprinters, Deceuninck won again and surprised. Ballerini came back to overtake Ackermann and fellow Dainese with enough clarity to raise his arms. A Tour of Poland that, in addition to the unfortunate accident of Jakobsen (among others affected), left Carapaz's first triumph with Ineos (the Ecuadorian did not start on the last day as a precaution after a fall on Saturday) and the premiere of Mads Pedersen in the world champion's rainbow jersey when he won the second stage.
