Remco Evenepoel


Personal Details:

Nationality Belgium
Date of birth 25/01/2000


Two-time road World Champion Remco Evenepoel, born January 25, 2000 in Aalst, Belgium, turned professional with QuickStep in 2019, moving directly from the junior ranks to the WorldTour. His dominance at junior level rapidly transferred to the pro ranks. In his debut season, Evenepoel won the Clásica San Sebastián and the European time trial title, as well as a silver medal in the time trial at the UCI Road World Championships.
Evenepoel continued in a similar vein in 2020, winning the Vuelta a San Juan, Volta ao Algarve, Vuelta a Burgos and Tour de Pologne, but his season was cut short by a dramatic crash at Il Lombardia that left him with a fractured pelvis.
After a long rehabilitation, Evenepoel made his return to competition at the 2021 Giro d’Italia, where he jousted with eventual winner Egan Bernal in the opening half of the race before abandoning in the third week. He bounced back from the chastening experience with a string of solo successes, including when he lapped the field on a stage of the Tour of Denmark.
It was a sign of things to come in 2022. Evenepoel scored a remarkable solo victory at Liège-Bastogne-Liège in April before building steadily towards the Vuelta a España, where he became Belgium’s first Grand Tour winner in 44 years. Two weeks after riding into Madrid in red, Evenepoel added the rainbow jersey to his collection with a remarkable lone effort to win the World Championships in Wollongong.
In 2023 Evenepoel continued to showcase his versatility with a second world title, this time in the individual time trial. He also added a second victory at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, won the overall at the UAE Tour and won five stages across two Grand Tours, including the mountains classification at the Vuelta a España. For his achievements, he won a third 'Crystal Bike' award as the best male Belgian cyclist for the 2023 season
