The Belgian rider was able to take a bike trip, for the first time since August and his terrible fall in the Tour of Lombardy.
A mind of steel. The young Belgian cyclist Remco Evenepoel has proven that this is one of his strengths. On Friday, the 21-year-old rider received a long-awaited medical green light: the right to get on his bike and hit the roads. In short, doing one’s job for those who are part of the Deceuninck-Quick Step training.
“It’s not a long ride, an hour and a half, but I’ll make the most of every second. I hope that everything is going well and that I can practice outside every day. Thank you for the support, ”said the Belgian hope in a video posted on social networks just before getting in the saddle.
A deliverance that took a long time to arrive. The one who had made a sensational entry on the professional circuit, winning in particular the Clasica San Sebastian, had fractured the basin by falling from a bridge on the Tour of Lombardy last summer. Her recovery has also been a long road, punctuated by ups and downs, pain and prolonged stops, with the consequence of delaying her return to the world of the little queen.
In Remco Evenepoel’s sights is the Giro d’Italia, which will kick off on May 8 in Turin. A goal that can be seen as a symbol. It will be his first big Tour but, above all, it was also the one he was to set off on, just before the horror he experienced in Lombardy.
