Remco Evenepoel (Deceunick-QuickStep) is easing back into training on the road, recently taking on an hour-and-a-half ride, stepping back onto the bike after continued delays as he works toward a comeback from August’s Il Lombardia crash.

The 21-year-old rider had appeared to be recovering quickly after he fractured his pelvis when he went over a bridge into a ravine at the Italian one-day race and was back to training outdoors in November and December. However, he was still in pain and team doctors advised him to stop training in mid-December, to give himself longer to heal.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
