Vuelta Course Should Suit Remco, According to Patrick Lefevere

Jul 27, 2022

Remco Evenepoel wants to excel in the Vuelta a Espana later this year, but the Quick-Step cyclist has changed his mind and will train at altitude prior to the Spanish grand tour rather than competing in the Vuelta a Burgos.

“This course should suit Remco”, said Quick-Step manager Patrick Lefevere. “We have seen in the Giro – despite his lesser preparation – that he has the talent to ride grand tours. If he starts in Spain with normal preparation, I still see opportunities in a few stages.”

Lefevere concluded that“I just don’t want to assign him a favorite role just yet. It still remains to be seen how he will react to a three-week stage race.”

Evenepoel, who has yet to complete a grand tour, will attempt to do it at the Vuelta this year in an effort to establish his credentials as a Grand Tour contender.

He had a difficult time in the most recent Tour de Suisse, placing 11th overall. He did, however, win the last time trial.
