Remco Evenepoel (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈrɛmkoː ˈeːvənəpu:l];[3] born 25 January 2000) is a Belgian professional cyclist who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Soudal–Quick-Step.[4]

He is the son of Patrick Evenepoel, a former racing cyclist who won the 1993 Grand Prix de Wallonie.[5] Remco Evenepoel started his sport career in association football, playing for the youth teams of R.S.C. Anderlecht and PSV Eindhoven, as well as being featured in the youth national teams of Belgium. Realising that his physical abilities made him more suited for cycling, he switched to the discipline in 2017. After winning the road race and time trial in the junior categories at the 2018 UCI Road World Championships, Evenepoel turned professional with Deceuninck–Quick-Step, skipping the under-23 rank.

Evenepoel won the 2022 Vuelta a España and the 2022 UCI World Road Race Championships two weeks later.

Early life and football

The son of the former professional cyclist Patrick Evenepoel, Remco Evenepoel started his sporting career as a football player. At the age of five he joined Anderlecht. When he was eleven years old he changed to the youth academy of PSV Eindhoven returning to Anderlecht again at the age of fourteen. He played four times for the Belgian U15 team and five times for the Belgian U16. He endured, however, some setbacks and disappointments.

Evenepoel won both the junior world time trial and road race at the 2018 UCI Road World Championships.

Evenepoel made a switch from football to cycling in 2017. He won both the time trial and road race at the 2018 European Junior Road Cycling Championships. The gap between him and the second place rider in the road race was 9 minutes and 44 seconds.[6][7]

Later in the year, Evenepoel also won both the road race and the time trial at the UCI Junior Road World Championships.[8]

Evenepoel celebrating victory at the 2019 Clásica de San Sebastián

Electing to skip the under-23 ranks, Evenepoel announced in July 2018 that he would join Deceuninck–Quick-Step for the 2019 season.[9] For his first season, Evenepoel was scheduled to compete in shorter stage races, and skipped the cobbled, one-day Classic races.[10][11] In his debut race, the Vuelta a San Juan, Evenepoel won the young rider classification and 9th overall whilst also winning his first professional podium in the stage 3 time trial behind teammate Julian Alaphilippe and Valerio Conti.[12] Evenepoel's first professional victory came at the Tour of Belgium, where he won the general classification as well as a stage and the points classification.[13] On 3 August 2019 Evenepoel scored his first World Tour victory when he won the Clásica de San Sebastián. He escaped from the field, accompanied by Toms Skujiņš about 20 km (12 mi) from the finish, dropping his companion on the last hill and soloing to victory.[14] He became the third-youngest rider ever to win a cycling classic in the history of the sport.[15] On 8 August 2019, Evenepoel won the time trial at the 2019 European Road Championships.[16] At the World Championships in September, Evenepoel would have been eligible to still ride in the under-23 category, but decided against it and started in the elite men's events.[17] He went on to win the silver medal in the time trial.[18] He spent much of the year sharing a room with Philippe Gilbert who acted in a mentoring role.[19]

2020

Evenepoel started the 2020 season at the Vuelta a San Juan, where he won the individual time trial on stage 3 and the general classification.[20] He then competed at the Volta ao Algarve. Here, he won stage 2 as well as the final stage, a time trial, to clinch overall victory ahead of Maximilian Schachmann.[21]

After the extended break in the cycling calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he won the Vuelta a Burgos[22] and the Tour de Pologne.[23]

Evenepoel suffered a serious accident at Il Lombardia. While descending the Muro di Sormano and after a sharp curve, he collided with a low wall on the side of a bridge and was thrown over it with the impact, falling in a dirt area near some trees, roughly 9 metres (30 ft) below the road.[24][25] No other cyclists were involved in the accident and he was swiftly removed from the scene by the emergency services, being conscious and responsive all the time. Hours later, his team reported that he had suffered a fractured pelvis and a right lung contusion, also stating that he would not be returning to competition in the near future.[26]

2021

Evenepoel returned to competition in the 2021 Giro d'Italia, finishing 7th in the prologue time trial, after which he said: "I was standing on the start ramp with some tears in my eyes. It was a hard way to come back and start the Giro like this. But immediately a top-10 spot, I didn't expect it – I'm really happy."[27] After spending the first 15 stages in the top-10 of the general classification, he crashed during stage 17 and was unable to continue the race.[28]

He competed in the rescheduled 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo in both the road race and time trial earning a top 10 place in the latter. During the 2021 World Championships in Flanders he claimed his second elite level world championship medal, taking the bronze in the time trial. Evenepoel was the centre of a furore in the World road race. Ahead of the race, it was felt that Wout van Aert was the protected leader for a Belgian team that was very hopeful of a home win,[29] and Eddy Merckx stated to Het Nieuwsblad that "If there is only one leader, you really shouldn't take Evenepoel [...] He rides mainly for himself; we saw that at the Olympics". Evenepoel responded "He always has to say something and that's a shame [...] Maybe it stings that I didn't ride for his son's team. I have a lot of respect for Eddy and apparently that is not mutual." On the race ahead "I'm here to work for Belgium, for Wout, because I know that it's the chance of his life to be world champion. He's in the form of his life, and it would be stupid of me to ride for myself. On this parcours, no one is stronger than Wout. I said already a lot of times that I will do everything [for] Wout."[30]

Evenepoel at the 2021 Danmark Rundt, which he won.

In the road race Evenepoel appeared to answer Merckx' criticism that he is a selfish cyclist by joining an early attack with 180 km still to race, followed by a second mid-race attack, and then created the decisive selection in the finals laps.[31] Van Aert was unable to win the race, which was won by Julian Alaphilippe. After the race, people from the world of cycling such as Evenepoel's trade team boss Patrick Lefevere praised Evenepoel's strength and wondered if the Belgian team had made the wrong choice of leader.[32] Lefevere asked: "[W]hy did the Belgians want to break open the race so early? And above all, why did they throw Remco into the fray so early? For me, Remco was the best man in the race after Julian. But they just sacrificed him and rolled out the red carpet for Julian."[33]

Evenepoel responded to the criticism of Belgium's tactics by revealing that he felt could have won the race but that "[o]n Friday evening before the World Championships there was a meeting with everyone. It was very unclear to me what exactly was expected of me. So after sleeping on it, the next day I went to coaches Sven Vanthourenhout and Serge Pauwels and asked: 'What do you expect from me in concrete terms?' "I also said straight out that I thought I might be able to win the race in a certain scenario. 'Do I get a chance or not?' I asked. 'No,' was the answer."[31] This caused a rift in the team; Van Aert said "I expected to hear criticism because we didn't win but that it came from someone on the team is not smart and only serves to add fuel to the fire. It's a shame, and I regret it. Remco issued more criticism on TV than in the team meeting"[34] and "He was the one who agreed with the tactics, who agreed with the selection. He has been preaching for weeks on end how he was looking forward to it so I think it's really weird to turn 180 degrees now".[35]

Days after the race Belgian team-mate Jasper Stuyven said that Evenepoel had failed to show up for the team debrief: "Everyone was there, except Remco [...] He was aware, but didn't think it was necessary. I think that is a shame, especially because he thought it necessary to say things on TV. That stuck with some of us. [...] I think that Remco should sometimes be slowed down by his entourage. He still has to learn when he can and cannot say things. Also, a super-strong rider – which he certainly is – should realise that some things should remain internal."[36]

2022

Evenepoel wearing the Red Jersey at the 2022 Vuelta a España

On 24 April, at the age of 22, Evenepoel won his first cycling monument in Liège–Bastogne–Liège after a 29.6 km solo effort with a 48-second lead on the runner-up. It was his first participation in this cycling classic. He completed the 257.1 km with an average speed of 41.397 km/h, which was the fastest edition in the history of La Doyenne. He won the 2022 Clásica de San Sebastián by launching a successful 44 kilometre solo attack, finishing nearly two minutes ahead of second-placed Pavel Sivakov.[37]

In early September, Evenepoel won the 2022 Vuelta a España, his first Grand Tour triumph.[38] Evenepoel took the red jersey after stage 6 of the race, which finished with a 800m climb to a mountain-top finish in San Miguel de Aguayo. While the stage was won by Jay Vine, Evenepoel managed to finish second, putting significant time into his general classification rivals, including Primož Roglič, the pre-race favorite.[39] Evenepoel extended his general classification lead to 2 minutes and 41 seconds after a dominant performance on the stage 10 individual time trial, finishing the 30.9 km course in 33 minutes and 18 seconds, 48 seconds ahead of second-place Roglič.[40] The following challenging mountain stages saw Roglič and Enric Mas claw back some time, reducing Evenepoel's general classification lead to as little as 1 minute and 26 seconds.[41] However, following Roglič's withdrawal from the race after a crash at the end of stage 16, Evenepoel won stage 18, another mountain-top finish, securing a 2-minute and 7-second advantage over Mas, which would prove unassailable over the final 2 stages.[42] Arriving in Madrid, Evenepoel's margin of victory was 2 minutes and 2 seconds over second place Mas and 4 minutes and 57 seconds over third place Juan Ayuso.[43]

In September, Evenepoel competed in both the Individual Time Trial and Road Race at the 2022 UCI Road World Championships in Wollongong, Australia. He finished 3rd in the time trial, 9 seconds behind winner Tobias Foss.[44] One week later, he won the road race, finishing two minutes and 21 seconds ahead of France's Christophe Laporte.[45] Having made it into a breakaway with 32 km to go, Evenepoel managed to break free from Alexey Lutsenko with 25 km to go and ride solo to the finish for his first World Championship victory at the Elite level.

2023

On 23 April, Evenepoel won Liège-Bastogne-Liège, winning the Monument for the second year in a row. He launched an attack on Côte de La Redoute; he attacked in the saddle, moving away from the peloton and only Tom Pidcock was able to follow him. A few kilometres later, Evenepoel pushed hard on the pedals again and left Pidcock trailing, soloing 30 kilometres to retain the title.[46]

Evenepoel at the 2023 Liège–Bastogne–Liège

In May, Evenepoel competed in the Giro d'Italia as one of the main favourites for victory.[47] In the opening day time trial to Ortona, he won the stage to take the race leader's pink jersey, in the process gaining significant time on his general classification rivals.[48] After losing the race lead to Andreas Leknessund during the first week of the race, he reclaimed it following his victory in the stage 9 individual time trial. However, following a positive test for COVID-19 that same evening, Evenepoel was forced to withdraw from the race, handing the race lead to Geraint Thomas.[49]

Following his recovery, Evenepoel competed in the Tour de Suisse. Here, he won stage 7 of the race, attacking on the last part of the stage neutralized for times on the general classification, following Gino Mäder's death due to a crash on a descent two days prior. Evenepoel dedicated his victory to Mäder.[50] He eventually finished the Tour de Suisse in third position overall.[51] After the Tour de Suisse, Evenepoel contested the national championships. In the time trial, he placed only fourth following a crash on a wet course.[52] On 25 June, he won the road race championship for the first time in his career, outsprinting Alec Segaert (Lotto–Dstny) at the finish line.[53] Later that summer, he took his third victory at the Clásica de San Sebastián, coming out ahead in a two-man sprint against Pello Bilbao.[54]

On August 11, he won the time trial at the 2023 UCI Road World Championships in Scotland.[55]

2024

Evenepoel began his 2024 season with a win at the Figueira Champions Classic on February 11, completing a 53km solo effort to victory.[56] He then secured the overall classification at the Tour of the Algarve from February 14 to 18, with a notable performance in the stage 4 time trial, winning by 16 seconds.[57]

In Paris-Nice, held from March 3 to 10, Evenepoel won the points and mountains classifications, while finishing second overall. He won the final stage 8, but despite repeated attacks, wasn't able to distance himself from Matteo Jorgenson, the general classification winner.[58]

During the Tour of the Basque Country, from April 1 to 6, Evenepoel abandoned the race due to injury following a serious crash on stage 4. The incident occurred during a high-speed descent and led to the neutralization of the race, affecting several other favorites, including Jonas Vingegaard and Primož Roglič. Despite the severity of the crash, Evenepoel managed to walk to medical assistance on his own.[59] He sustained a broken collarbone and scapula, requiring surgery, which was successfully completed on April 6.[60]
