Evenepoel is back

The Belgian opens his record of victories this year, the first since he fractured his pelvis last year in Lombardy. It is more of a leader.


They say that there are no two without three. And that is what Remco Evenepoel must have thought when he saw the triumphs of two cycling 'roosters' such as Tadej Pogacar and Richard Carapaz, who achieved two doublets (stage and lead) in the Tour of Slovenia and the Tour of Switzerland, respectively. Young Remco (21 years old), who has something to spare besides talent is character, joined the party with his first win of the season. He did it in his specialty, the fight against the clock, by covering the 11.2 km of the time trial of the Tour of Belgium in exactly 12 minutes.

The pearl of Belgian cycling increased his overall lead to 45 seconds over his Deceuninck teammate, Yves Lampaert, but more importantly, he cleared up doubts about his physical condition. And it is that Remco did not climb to the top of the podium since last year (general of the Tour of Poland), before suffering the terrible accident at the Giro de Lombardia that left him with a pelvic fracture and a pulmonary contusion. Many doubted whether he would become the one from before, that predator who conquered all the races in which he had participated in 2020 (San Juan, Algarve, Burgos and Poland), and more after seeing that his first participation in a Giro d'Italia it was difficult.

Evenepoel dropped out in the third week after suffering another heavy downhill crash, forcing him to abandon the Corsa Rosa in speculation. Had his accident affected him psychologically? At the moment, Remco is talking on the road, and only 13 days after saying goodbye to his first big lap, he is already climbing to the top of a podium.
