The alarms go off with Evenepoel

The Belgian has not trained on the bike for weeks. Although his recovery after the accident is slower than expected, he confirmed his presence at the Giro.


After saving his life in an accident suffered in the past Lombardy Giro, Remco Evenepoel surprised locals and strangers with his extraordinary recovery process by showing videos of his progress with rehabilitation. Even a few weeks after leaving the hospital, he began taking bicycle rides, in addition to being part of the concentration that the Deceuninck-QuickStep carried out last November in Calpe. Unfortunately, according to the Belgian's latest statements, the most optimistic forecasts have come to a halt.

At the Deceuninck presentation that took place this Wednesday in Brussels, the 20-year-old talent acknowledged that his recovery is slower than expected because he is still dragging pain from the fall: "I have a surprise for you. when or where am I going to start the season. I still don't feel well on the bike and I can't sit in the saddle for long. "

For now, Evenepoel's plans are to pursue specific solo work outside of future team training concentrations, based mainly on swimming and walking. But does this new scenario worry Remco? "No, because we had planned to resume intense bicycle training from mid-February," analyzed Patrick Lefevere's pearl, so the latest setbacks were on schedule.

The Giro, the only goal in sight

Thus, within a most uncertain preseason with the cancellation of the first races of the season, Evenepoel is unaware of most of its calendar for the 2021 course as everything will depend on the evolution of its physical state. What he did confirm in the latest statements provided on social networks by Deceuninck, is that he will start the next edition of the Giro d'Italia, as long as he recovers in time.

"I will be aiming for the Giro d'Italia again. I am looking forward to being at the start in May and discovering this incredible race and its incredible fans!" Remco expressed with emotion. His big goal, as happened in 2020, will once again be a Corsa Rosa that was lost last season due to the accident. Let's hope that his debut in a big one will finally arrive in 2021 ... 444 444
