Two days before the start of the 104th edition of Volta à Itália, tomorrow in Turin, the recent joint press conference of two people from the Deceuninck-QuickStep team on the great Italian João Almeida and Rmco Evenbuell sparked some curiosity, specifically in the words of the 21-year-old Belgian cyclist about the big victory case generally
“I say Joao Almeida and he will say my name. Evenbuell joked, without failing to warn: “The best thing is to rip the pink shirt in two so that we are all happy. I know we risk starting Giro without a rhythm. Together with João, we did an indoor altitude training where she trained at an altitude of over 2000 meters. “But I never ran over 1,600 meters. Let’s see how I would respond.”
The 22-year-old Portuguese was more assertive. “I learned a lot at the Giro race last year, especially the importance of distributing energy in the best way possible for the entire race,” explained João Almeida.
