Remco Evenepoel showed another great performance in Volta a Catalunya, winning his first mountain stage in 2023 against world-class competition. The Belgian phenomenon attacked at the top of La Molina and only Primož Roglič had the strength to respond after Quickstep had paced much of the last 50km.

The Climbs of Volta a Catalunya 2023

Volta a Catalunya might be the most interesting one week stage race this year.

Evenepoel Saves Quickstep’s 2022 Classics Campaign | Liege-Bastogne-Liege

Remco Evenepoel started the 2022 edition of Liege-Bastogne-Liege without the 2020 and 2021 winners, Primož Roglič and Tadej Pogačar, on the start list, but with Wout van Aert as the favourite for the race. After his co-leader, Julian Alaphilippe had crashed badly earlier in the race, Evenepoel dropped everyone on the second-to-last climb, Côte de La Redoute and used his elite time-trial abilities to solo away. The peloton lead for some time by Mikel Landa did not stand a chance to catch the Belgian, who won his first monument at only 22 years old.
