It is not known how deep Evenepoel fell.
Rescue workers say that Evenepoel is conscious. They got him out of the ravine. The Belgian has been placed on a stretcher in an ambulance and will be further examined in a hospital.
The 20-year-old Evenepoel is in great shape this season. He has already won the Tour of San Juan, the Tour of Algarve, the Tour of Burgos and the Tour of Poland. He cycles for the Deceuninck – Quick-Step, just like the Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen, who crashed heavily a week and a half ago during a sprint in the Tour of Poland.
