Remco Evenepoel announced on Friday that he received good news from his latest medical check-up and is set to prepare for his 2021 season targets, which include the Giro d'Italia and the Olympic Games.

In his first two seasons in the WorldTour with Deceuninck-Quickstep, the 21-year-old racked up 14 victories including five stage race wins. After taking out his first WorldTour stage race at the Tour de Pologne last August, Evenepoel made a key selection in Il Lombardia but crashed off a bridge on the descent of the Sormano and fractured his pelvis.

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.
