It's over to the United Arab Emirates Tour Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quick Step). The 19-year-old Belgian rider was forced to retire on Wednesday in a stage 3 to connect Palm Jumeirah Hatta Damera to 197 km. We still do not know the exact conclusion of this fall.
"Since the runners were telling me, there was a bicycle organizer. Several riders, including Remco, had to move around. Remco then hit the bike or another rider, it's still unclear"says Geert Van Bondt, Deceuninck-QuickStep Sports Director."I believe that circumstances also act. It has 32 degrees"he continues.Remco felt a little bit of drowsiness and was taken to the hospital as a preventative".
Remco Evenepoel has no fractures but superficial wounds. The other program will depend on its state. "We have to wait for the doctor to go", add Van Bondt.I do not think the program should change, meetings that will take place before Koksijde, Nokere Koerse, Turkey and Normandy. So it still has time".
