Evenepoel is honest: “It was not my best time trial”

What could have been and was not. For now, the Giro d’Italia had passed under the will of Remco Evenepoel. Although he had some bad luck suffering two falls on a day of incessant rain, the Belgian came out unscathed, without attacks from his rivals, on the day of the Big Sasso. Who knows, if they had sought to tickle her, how a general would be now who, after her close victory in the Cesena time trial, looks like this: the first four classifieds, in fifty seconds.

And it is that the minutes that the Belgian was expected to win compared to his direct rivals, were a mirage. “I think I didn’t do very well. I started too fast and my second part was not so good. I found better legs in the technical part because I was able to recover a bit. I didn’t feel very good in the second part with the wind against me. It’s another stage victory, but it wasn’t my best time trial”, admitted Remco minutes after crossing the finish line, just a second ahead of Geraint Thomas and two regarding Tao Geoghegan. The Ineos duo, when few expected it, gets fully involved in the fight for the No Fine.

However, Remco was satisfied with the victory and the advantages obtained, despite the fact that these seem more than insufficient for defend against Primoz Roglic (at 47″ overall) in the high mountains What is to come: “Going to the mountain with the advantage I have now is pretty good, but Ineos will surely have some plans to attack me. I have a strong team and a lot of confidence. Tomorrow I will have torecover well because my last two stages were not my best days. First I want to enjoy this victory”. The Giro looks beautiful.
