by SEAD DEDOVIC | VIEW 1129
Remco Evenepoel is already thinking about the Giro d'Italia, which will be held next year. He recently confirmed that he will be part of the competition, and during the conversation on his Instagram profile, he also talked about the advantages of that competition.
“I am really looking forward to the opening time trial and then to Stage 9 [another time trial]," he said, as quoted by eurosport.com.
"We scouted the latter last week. There are beautiful time trials in this Giro that suit me well.
I hope to do well.
The last week contains a super-tough but beautiful mountain stages in the Dolomites. I look forward to it. It will be a special last week”.
Cyclo-cross races: It's not a big goal
Cyclo-cross races are not something he has given much thought to.
Evenepoel has different plans that he focused on this time. Grand Tours are what is most important to him. “Have I thought about cyclo-cross? Yes, but it’s not a big goal and I don’t think there are any opportunities to develop as a rider.
"The big dream on which I am now focused is winning the three Grand Tours”.
Remco Evenepoel also has a special nutrition system that he applies. It's not like Remco is 100% disciplined, and there are many things in his diet that some might not apply. "What is my favourite meal? It depends. The night before a race I eat chicken, fish, pasta or rice.
I try to vary it because you don’t want to eat the same thing every time. If I have no races, a burger with fries and then an ice cream.
"For Christmas and New Year? Twice the same – a very long workout in the morning so that I can enjoy a big dinner in the evening." We hope that he will show his full potential.
