Remco Evenepoel: This is just the beginning

Remco Evenepoel won stage two of the competition earlier this year, together with the Vuelta a San Juan of Argentina. His impressive shape led to suggestions for the Giro d’Italia in May.

Remco Evenepoel warned his rivals that the best thing still to come was to secure his second win in 2020 after winning the Volta ao Algarves.

In each time trial, the 20-year-old made a splendid ride to win, beating his rivals in general as well as setting a course record of 10 seconds for world champion of piping Rohan Dennis.

The rider from Deceuninck QuickStep has also said that it’s worth beating Dennis since he lost more than a minutes last year in the Yorkshire Worlds.

But he said: “The Volta ao Algarve is not a three-week race like the Giro. That is something altogether different. I’m just working towards my goals now, and I want to be prepared in two months. I said I wanted to come to Algarve, I did my very best and performed as well as possible. Next up is Tirreno-Adriatico and we’ll see how we go there. It’s about going step by step, race by race, then we’ll see in the end what the season brings.”
