Remco Evenepoel will start his 2022 season at the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina, but his Grand Tour plans are still to be decided, with Deceuninck-QuickStep management keen to see the routes of the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España before formalising the talented young Belgian’s major goals. 

Evenepoel won the 2020 Vuelta a San Juan just before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the world and the sport into lockdown. The race was cancelled in 2021 but has recently been confirmed for January 30-February 6, 2022, with eight WorldTour teams said to be keen to ride after the cancellation of the Tour Down Under.
