After the Tour of San Juan and the Tour of the Algarve, Remco Evenepoel also added the Tour of Burgos to his record yesterday. Only the icing on the cake in the final stage was missing.
“The final climb was harder than Thursday’s when I won,” says Evenepoel. “It was short and steep. I prefer it a little longer, but I could go with the best again.”
With his 3rd overall victory in the same number of races, Evenepoel can only speak of a successful start to the season.
“Another perfect week in a perfect season and now I’m heading for the Tour of Poland (August 5 to 9, red). I also watch that race in preparation, but of course I never miss a win.”
“It is good news that I am already so good now, but my peak is yet to come”, promises Deceuninck-Quick Step leader, who will debut in a big round later this year. In October he will ride the Giro.
“It always amazes me that I can go with the best climbers in the world. I am very happy that I am in that position now. I am working hard for it, because my big dream is to become a bigger rider. I think be good. “
