He’s started three stage races in three different countries this year and on Wednesday Remco Evenepoel rolls into the Tour de Pologne to try and take a fourth straight GC win.

The 20-year-old Belgian notched up a victory at the Vuelta a San Juan back in January before sealing the top step on the podium at the Volta ao Algarve a month later. Even the COVID-19 lockdown and subsequent postponement of racing couldn’t shift Evenepoel from his stride with the Deceuninck-QuickStep rider winning the Vuelta a Burgos at the end of July.

Now the talented all-rounder leads his team into Pologne, a race that typically follows on the coattails of the Tour de France but this year is being dressed up as a warm-up for the Giro d'Italia – a race Evenepoel will make his Grand Tour debut in later this year.
