Belgian rider Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quick Step) has not yet fully recovered from his spectacular fall at the Giro de Lombarda last August and does not know when he will be able to compete again.
“I have a surprise for you. It is not known when or where I am going to start the season. I still do not feel well on the bike and I can not sit long in the saddle”, declared the cyclist this Wednesday at a press conference before the Belgian media to give information on their fitness.
The young Belgian bicycle prodigy, aged 20, suffered a serious one each on August 15 in the The Lombarda when he was leading the race and went off the road about 50 kilometers from the end, in the descent of Sormano, when he hit a projection of the wall of a bridge that sent him thrown forward.
He plunged about five meters into the void and landed in a wooded area but, despite the striking images, the runner suffered “only” a contusion to the lungs and fractured his pelvis, an injury that did not require surgery.
He started riding an exercise bike in September and in November he was training in Calpe (Spain), still feeling discomfort that then seemed logical but that two months later have not disappeared.
Currently Remco, as the Belgian media knows him, follows a specific training program with his team, with walking and swimming, although not training with the rest of the group for now does not seem like a major problem.
“No, because we had planned to resume intense bicycle training from mid-February,” he commented in a statement on the chain’s website. RTBF Evenepoel, who, before his fall, in 2020 won four stage races, including the Return to PolandI remember that he saves with special affection for being his first victory in a round of the UCI World Tour category.
