“He reminded who was the boss”, “No mercy”, Victory signature”: Evenepoel impressed again at the Vuelta

And in the end it’s Remco who wins ! This is how the DH headlined this morning after Evenepoel’s new feat at the Vuelta on Thursday. But we are not the only ones to rave about the show of the one we call the “Little Cannibal”. For Marca, Remco has “remembered who was the boss”.

The media, however, ensures that nothing is finished. “Madrid’s podium is already in sight and the forces are getting tighter and tighter”adds the Spanish media. “This Friday is a tricky day in Talavera de la Reina. (…) The only climb of the day is 14 kilometers long and has an average gradient of around 4.5%. powders from the start.”

For the daily AS, Evenepoel only showed “no mercy” for its competitors. “The red jersey responded to all the attacks, and even made a breakaway. Mas made him suffer a little but not a lot. In fact, he still had enough strength to win the stage. Without any compassion for the last survivor, Robert Gesink, he who was looking for a victory as the icing on the cake of his career, at the age of 36. And who wanted to honor his injured leader Roglic.Evenepoel then completed the job. “In the end, the Belgian took advantage of the work of others throughout the day. Then he finished off his rivals with an iron fist. The Belgian had no compassion for Gesink and was not generous with But neither. It’s a leader’s right. Let others take notice.”

It is not only in Spain that Remco Evenepoel has been emulated. For the newspaper L’Equipe, “Evenepoel is still the strongest”. The sports daily believes that it “sent a big message to his opponents by winning a particularly lively 18th stage of the Vuelta on Thursday.” Despite all the attacks, he once again showed that he could go all the way according to the newspaper. “Evenepoel doesn’t care, he wins his first online victory on a Grand Tour and consolidates his red jersey. With a last climb far from the finish on Friday, there is probably only Saturday left to overthrow the Quick rider Step. Given his legs, the task looks damn complicated.”

For Eurosport, Evenepoel demonstrated that he was indeed the big man of the Vuelta. “A boss final and Remco Evenepoel again put a big blow on the head of all his opponents”, he begins. “Long behind a breakaway of more than 40 riders, the Belgian crunched everyone on the last ascent to offer himself a first online victory (the real first was on a time trial) on the Tour of Spain. “ The outlet also highlights the incredible ambition of the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl racer: “Remco Evenepoel wants everything: the Vuelta, stage wins. The Belgian will only leave crumbs for his opponents until Madrid.” One thing is certain, victory is slowly but surely approaching according to Eurosport. “The red jersey seems several notches above the others and seems determined to take everything before raising its arms one last time in the Spanish capital. A real signature victory.”
