Following his spring Classics-saving victory for QuickStep-AlphaVinyl at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Remco Evenepoel said that he felt it was the first time the best version of himself had been on the bike since his horror crash at Il Lombardia at the end of 2020.

The 22-year-old stormed to victory in Liège, powering away from the peloton on the Côte de La Redoute with 29km left to race and soloing home over the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons as a strong chase group could do nothing behind.
