After being sidelined from the Giro d’Italia and resting at home for having covid-19, Remco Evenepoel will make his return to competition at the Tour de Suisse, which belongs to the UCI calendar and takes place between the 11th and 20th this month in Switzerland. The information was disclosed through the athlete’s social networks.
In addition to participating in the competition in Switzerland, after a period of rest between matches, the cyclist will have to concentrate again to defend the Soudal Quick-Step team at the UCI Road World Championship, between August 3rd and 13th, in Glasgow, Scotland.
“It has been a big challenge to see a path through the rest of my season. We know my main target this year was the Giro d’Italia and what happened was really unfortunate, so it was important to plan the right path with the team management. I think Switzerland is the perfect start, and allows me to revisit a race where I have fond memories of my time trial victory last year,” said Remco Evenepoel in a statement released by the team.
