TDF. Tour de France – Tom Steels: “Remco Evenepoel, it’s even better than expected”

Remco Evenepoel therefore concludes his very first week on the Tour de France by being second in the general classification, 33 seconds behind Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates), and ahead of the two other big names that are Jonas Vingegaard (Team Visma | Lease a Bike) et Primoz Roglic (Red Bull-BORA-hansgrohe). This Sunday, the highly anticipated and dreaded 9th stage with its white paths gave birth to a status quo between the favourites despite a superb show throughout the day, notably thanks to the attacks of the Yellow Jersey but also of the Belgian of the Soudal Quick-Step. His sports director Tom Steels gave us an update on this good day at our microphone after the line.

“Normally the podium is the goal, but it’s still far away”

It’s not bad though, we knew it was a risk to ride on steps like that. But it’s okay, I think for the spectators it was a good show. For the future, these white paths should perhaps be a little harder. But it’s okay, everything went well“, declared the former Belgian rider before drawing up a necessarily positive assessment of these first nine days.Everything went well, it’s even better than we expected.ait. It’s only his first Tour, he won the time trial, he’s still second in the general classification, we’re really happy. What’s next? We’ll see, you never know, it could be second or fifth, I don’t know. Normally the podium is the goal, yes, but it’s still far away.“, he concluded Tom Steels, prudent.
