Remco Evenepoel Wins Tour of Poland and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?

The Belgian does it again

Remco Evenepoel has started four stage races in 2020. And he has won four stage races. The 20-year-old Deceuninck – Quick-Step rider shows a brilliant form. He won the queen stage 4 of the Tour of Poland after a brilliant 50-km solo breakaway, leaving Jakob Fuglsang nearly 2 minutes down in the GC. Simon Yates finished third overall, trailing 2 minutes and 28 seconds. As Evenepoel crossed the line, he held up the number 75 in tribute to team-mate Fabio Jakobsen who is in serious condition after a crash near the finish of the first stage.

The Dutchman was forced into a barrier after a dangerous move by Dylan Groenewegen who has been since suspended by the Jumbo-Visma team and is awaiting judgement by the UCI disciplinary committee. Fabio Jakobsen has been kept in hospital and was successfully woken up from an induced coma.
