Remco Evenepoel remembers the Portuguese performance at Giro 2020 and talks about their companionship.
Belgian cyclist Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-QuickStep) confirmed this Friday that he will work with Portugal’s Joao Almeida on the Italy tour, which will take place between May 8 and 30.
Speaking to ProCycling, Rymco Evenbuell said, “I feel that I will not win this year. I will leave Turin to gain experience. Our man in the general team is Joao Almeida.”
Remco Evenepoel, 21, confirmed that he and João Almeida are “good buddies”, adding: “He has worked with me in the past, and now I will do the same for him. Together with Masnada and Honoré, I have a mission to help João reach the highest possible level.” Last year, he narrowly missed the podium. “
In 2020, the Belgian won all the events he participated in in 2020, whether before or after the stoppage due to the Covid-19 pandemic, specifically Volta or the Algarve, before he suffered a serious fall in Volta in Lombardy.
In 2020, João Almeida led one of the most important events in the global Velocipedia calendar, Giro de Itália, wearing the pink shirt, the symbol of the leader, for 15 days, finishing the competition in fourth place.
