Remco Evenepoel (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl) will make his 2022 season debut at the five-day Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana in early February, with a host of other big-name riders opting to kick off their 2022 season at the Spanish event.

Evenepoel was due to ride the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina, which had the same February 2-6 dates as the Valenciana stage race, but the South American event has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
