Now there are no more doubts. After the abandonment of Remco Evenepoel, following his positive Covid-19 test on Sunday, Quick Step team director Patrick Lefevere rejected, on Wednesday 17 May, the hypothesis of seeing his leader on the roads of the Tour de France in July.

No, he will not participate in the Tour de France. We won’t change his schedule, that wouldn’t be very smartthe team boss told RTBF. The best thing for him is to recover, relax. Then we will do the post covid health checks and redo a schedule. There will be the World Cup at the beginning of August, but it is too early to talk about a possible participation in the Vuelta. He explained.

According to the plan planned by the manager of Soudal Quick-Step, it will be necessary to wait until 2024 for Remco Evenepoel to discover the Grande Boucle.
