On Wednesday, many of the top cycling athletes will be at the start of the Algarve Tour. This also applies to Remco Evenepoel, who will return to the Tour he won in 2020. “I am very optimistic,” Salva said.
With an impressive line-up of participants, the Algarve Tour will begin on Wednesday. On the Belgian side, he’s looking forward to Remco Evenepoel. The young wolf from Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl returns to the territory where he was allowed to triumph in 2020.
“The roads, the nature and the track are so beautiful here. I have loved riding here in the past, so I will be back this year,” he looks forward in a video of his team. “I feel like cycling is alive here, it was nice to feel the love for the sport here.”
I’ve loved riding here in the past so will be back this year.
Evenball started his season well, with a win in Valencia, and will also start in the Algarve with ambition. “When you come back to a match you’ve already won, you always want to do at least as well as last time. But it’s always difficult to make predictions in advance.”
“We’ve explored a few stages, including the time trial, which is very challenging and long. That stage is going to be very important for the classification anyway. We also want to get wins here with Fabio Jacobsen. I’m very optimistic.”
Immortal on Alto da Foia
In 2020, Evenbúl impressed with his victory over Alto da Foya, a tough climb in the region. In honor of this achievement, a statue was unveiled at the top of last year’s climb.
“Two days ago, we went to boarding for training,” says Evenpole from Portugal. “I wanted to see the statue on top and this was done very well. It’s really nice to have a statue in a place that you only visited once.”
