Deceuninck-QuickStep's Remco Evenepoel has scouted two of the key stages of this year's rescheduled Giro d'Italia while in Italy on a team training camp. The 20-year-old Belgian will take on the three-week race from October 3-25, and is considered a possible GC threat, despite it being the first Grand Tour of his career.

Evenepoel is currently in the Italian Dolomites, based at the Val di Fasso ski resort, along with his Deceuninck-QuickStep teammates, on an 18-day altitude training camp, but found the time last Friday and Saturday to do reconnaissance rides of the routes of the stage 14 individual time trial from Conegliano to Valdobbiadene and the mountainous stage 15, which starts at the Rivolto Air Base in Codroipo and ends with a summit finish at the Piancavallo ski resort.
