Remco Evenepoel takes Mathieu van der Poel into drag during training (and leaves it far behind uphill)

Remco Evenepoel takes Mathieu van der Poel into drag during training (and leaves it far behind uphill)

Remco Evenepoel is working on his final preparations for the Vuelta (starting Aug. 19) and going like a rocket. Today he went to train about 150 kilometers near Denia and did a big part with Mathieu van der Poel. It was a good training with about 3000 altimeters. Evenepoel smashed away several times upwards.

When there are no races, cycling enthusiasts still have the Strava to enjoy themselves. The training app taught us that Mathieu van der Poel and Rimko Evenpoel went out together today near Alicante.

It was a solid training of about 150 kilometers with over 3000 altimeters in solid temperatures. “Sauna Day,” the MVDP called the trip, which they pretty much did together.

Uphill, Van der Poel logically should have let the Belgian rider in the Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl ride a few times, but Remco very firmly continued on a number of climbs.

Now take the Tarbena boarding up to the fares. Evenpoel made the five-kilometer climb with an average gradient of 5.6 percent, about 2.5 minutes faster than the Dutchman and more than 5 minutes faster than Thomas de Gendt, who also passed there today.

REV was by far the fastest of the day to climb from the Tarbena to prices.
