Evenepoel will debut its rainbow jersey in the classic Binche-Chimai-Binche


The Belgian Remco Evenepoel will compete for the first and last time this year with the world champion jersey on the occasion of Binche-Chimay-Binche which will be held on October 4 on a 198.6 km route.

It’s an event where the combination of hills, cobblestones and narrow roads on the local circuit always liven up the competition and the almost 200km race can come to life early, especially as many try to hold off the sprinter to be a competitor. .

“I really want to wear the rainbow jersey for the first time in front of my audience, but I can’t wait to run for the last time with my partner who is saying goodbye, either. Iljo Keisse, a rider who has had a huge influence on my career, who has guided me since I turned pro and his presence, his wise words and his experience in the peloton next season will be missed,” said the world champions.

In the last race together, Evenepoel hopes to show “the spirit that characterizes the wolf pack”, the name by which the Belgian team is known.

The group of Quick Step Alpha Vinyl for Binche-Chimay-Binche the French champion will also be included Florian Sénéchal, Stijn Steels, 2014 winner Zdenek Stybar, as well as neo-professionals Martin Svrcek and Stan Van Tricht.

“We know the route very well, and the key is the local laps, but everything depends on the weather. The way it is today, it will be rainy and windy, and it can change the race. But the riders are motivated, we have some people who can do something interesting on this route and we will do everything we can to achieve a good result”, explained the sports director Rik Van Slycke.
