Remco Evenepoel literally puts the word “crown” into his two-week altitude training session: more than a minute faster than Kwiatkowski, Van Aert and his colleagues. On the Spanish climb | Cycling

CyclingRemco Evenepoel finished his alpine apprenticeship in Tenerife “in style”. In a 4km climb to a small mountain village, he crushed the former bests of Michal Kwiatkowski and Wat Van Aert, among others, by more than a minute.

Evenepoel described his difficult flight on the Strava ‘MASCA’ (158.7 km, 5h38′, total altitude difference: 4,218 m). To the slope, he chose on the last day of his two-week hike at Ted (Tenerife) to test himself one last time before heading home again. 4.1 kilometers of climbing at a rate of 10.61% to the village of the same name (90 inhabitants) in the Mazico de Teno mountains.

With a time of 13.40 (about 18 km / h) he crushed the former KOM (King of the Mountain) Michal Kwiatkowski (14.41, end of May 2016) by no less than 1.01. Wout van Aert led 14.49 in that specific segment last year, his Jumbo Visma teammate Tobias Foss 14.56. According to certain accounts on Twitter, Evenepoel could have jumped to 6.8 watts per kilogram of body weight.

A value that must be handled with caution. And that certainly shouldn’t lead to cheerful early conclusions. The final ‘full effort’, as it’s called in the jargon, shows Evenepoel has been purposeful in Tenerife in anticipation of the Basque Country Tour, which begins on Monday, and the subsequent Ardennes Classics.

It is also somewhat a confirmation of what we saw of him in “Tappa dei Muri” in Tirreno-Adriatico. By far, it was his best trip, she was there. Evenball attacked himself with Poojacar and Vinggaard, But the trio led wrongly in the final† The rest of the uphill course also ran smoothly for Evenepoel, although rain threw a wrench in the works several times and even made a spin indoors on a given day. Also striking: the frequent “jumps” in his speed during the various training sessions, suggesting a focus on interval and closely related to the two-to-five minute efforts that will soon be necessary on the Walloon slopes.
