Even after two bad days, Remco Evenepoel remains optimistic: “I'm late enough to try something.”

Even after two bad days, Remco Evenepoel remains optimistic: “I’m late enough to try something.”

The riders at the Critérium du Dauphiné will soon put an end to French stage racing. Remco Evenepoel has already won the time trial, but his hunger has not been satiated yet. “To try something, the legs have to be there,” the Belgian champion said before the start of the final stage.

Yesterday, Remco Evenepoel’s day did not go as expected. He lost a lot of time to his rivals and had to end the ride with a broken bike computer.

“I had to get a new one. Fortunately, we have enough of them,” Evenepoel laughed before the start.

The young Belgian spoke to the press in good spirits, because he still starts the final stage with ambitions.

“This is basically just in case it is possible,” he added. “The stage is difficult again, with a start that is difficult to control. So anything could happen.”

“If the legs are there, it’s possible, because the climb has become flat. If I survive, I think I’m falling behind Roglic enough that he won’t come and get me. But for that the legs have to be there.” Evenepoel said this morning.

“Umi can vote for me.”
