Uci road world Championships, Remco Evenepoel (19) it can be Wednesday, is the youngest world champion in time trial ever. Will the European champion with his feet on the ground. “A time trial of 54 kilometers, it is totally a new thing for me,” he said.

“I’m feeling good? This is the part I Wednesday, to know how to say it,” grinned Evenepoel, at his press conference. “I have to go to the tt to work. Hopefully, everything will fall into its fold. We’ll have to see where the ship runs aground. It is the first time I have had an individual time trial of 54 kilometres of driving. For the first time, an hour of ‘mashed potatoes’ on the bike. I’m curious to see how my body will react at that range. This has been a great journey of discovery.”

The trail seems to be ideal for a Evenepoel. “I just have to share it to the track a couple of times recently. Not to be too technical. A long, straight line from start to finish. Of the more than 500 vertical meters and can be much harder, of course. And, like the wind, hard blow, it will be a battle.”

According to the Evenepoel, Belgium is probably the most chronoland in the world. “Yes, I think so, yes. We have three Campenaerts, Lampaert, and Evenepoel self, ed.). and Wout van Aert, have throughout all time trials and won the game. In addition, Victor will also have to agree with the werelduurrecordhouder. To do that there is not a lot.”

Some of his own personal ambitions, we want to know. “The Top-five. But if I don’t get it, I will not be disappointed. After this season, I have come with no pressure to start. I feel like I am ready for it”, says Evenepoel.
