Remco Evenepoel has said he hopes to ride the 2021 Giro d’Italia, despite a near two-month break from training, describing the race route as “really hard but really beautiful” in a video message shown during the presentation on Italian television. 

The talented, young Belgian had planned to make his Grand Tour debut at the 2020 Giro d’Italia but crashed out of Il Lombardia and fractured his hip a few weeks before. He returned to training in November but was then forced to take a further break between mid-December and mid-February to allow his fracture to fully heal.
