Remco Evenepoel reassures himself after time trial slip: "It's not that bad"

Remco Evenepoel reassures himself after time trial slip: “It's not that bad”

Remco Evenepoel appeared in front of our microphone this afternoon with a big smile. A reassuring picture of the Soudal-Quick Step team, which witnessed its leader slipping on the asphalt in the opening test yesterday. “I slept well and I don't see any problem,” the Belgian champion said.

The Basque Country tour did not go entirely according to Remco Evenepoel's plan.

The Belgian champion crashed immediately in one of the first corners of the opening practice – as he wanted to gain some time on his rivals.

“But it's not that bad,” he reassured me with a smile today before the second stage began. “I slept well too. No problem.”

Ultimately, Evenball will also limit the damage in the rankings. He crossed the line fourth, 11 seconds behind winner Primoz Roglic.

Things could go either way today.

Today Evenepoel & Co. A treacherous journey ahead. Although only one real climb is planned, the hunt is on for truly flat sections.

“Things could go either way today,” our compatriot nods. “Though I expect it will all come together and finish in a sprint with a big group.”

So, Evenball can still hide a bit today, right? “Yes, actually,” he says with a suspiciously large smile.

This promises.
