Evenepoel shuts up after exhibiting in Denmark

The young Belgian cyclist held this celebration after winning alone after a powerful attack 17 kilometers from the finish line and where he doubled the peloton on the final circuit.


Remco Evenepoel once again starred in an exhibition of his own to achieve the victory in the third stage of the Tour of Denmark in a day that was very reminiscent of when Evenepoel himself won the 2019 San Sebastián Classic.In fact, Evenepoel himself tried to break the race in the last 50 kilometers when the Belgian attacked and took three runners with him. However, a bad line on a curve on a descent caused Evenepoel to lose contact with the leak and return to the peloton.

It was then that 'The Pack' of the Deceuninck Quick-Step began to pull the peloton and the work of the madison olympic champion Michael Morkov and the German Jannik Steimle led to the three escapees being hunted by the group 20 from goal and shortly after, 17 kilometers from the finish, Evenepoel launched a solo attack that no one could follow and that the Belgian took as a time trial in which he opened space to take the stage with 1:29 on Tosh Van der Sande, placing himself as the new leader and even doubling the peloton at the final Vejle circuit with 1.4 kilometers to go.

In statements released by the Deceuninck Quick-Step, Evenepoel himself commented on his impressions of what happened on the stage. "We knew it would be a tough race, so we were vigilant in the front as we expected the peloton to split. I have tried several times and, in one of them, I made a small mistake. Fortunately I have a great team by my side, with Jannik and Michael giving everything to take the break. In the last kilometers Michael told me that it was a tough part and that was where I attacked to make a difference. The fight for the general classification is not closed but I hope to have the sensations of today and take the jersey to home. I am very motivated to see how the team has worked for me and I am very proud of how everything turned out. Also, it is my first victory on the road after a very hard period and it means a lot to me. I have had many ups and downs but I have remained patiently and confidently and the reward has come today. "The celebration of Evenepoel at the finish line was also widely commented, when he came pointing his head and putting a finger to his mouth commanding silence. A gesture that Evenepoel himself wanted to explain in statements collected by Het Nieuwsblad. "I had agreed with a friend who would celebrate it like this when he won a race again." An entire display that seems to show that Evenepoel has scared off ghosts and that he can shine with the elite of the platoon.
