“Remco Evenepoel and Wout Van Aert have better chances on paper for Tokyo”
“I also want to win other races, for example by taking a long break or following the best. “ That is why Victor Campenaerts should participate this season in events like the Circuit Het Nieuwsblad, Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne, the Grand Prix of the Scheldt and the Brabançonne arrow. Also aware that his chances of making the Olympic Games of Tokyo are very low in view of the competition from Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Vism) and Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quick Step), which currently offer more guarantees in the time trial discipline, the 29-year-old rider should take the opportunity to make his debut on the Tour de France.
“I think it is ridiculous to say that because I put the time trial on the map in Belgium I should therefore go to the Olympics. The riders who have the most chances of winning a medal have to participate in it. Evenepoel and Wout Van Aert have better chances on paper for Tokyo […] This year I am leaving on the idea of doing the Tour of Italy and the Tour de France. In 2018, I had also competed in two Grand Tours with the Giro and La Vuelta, but it was less noticeable because there was a lot of time between the two races. Moreover, iI will prepare for the Giro by doing an altitude training camp “, concludes the native of Hoboken.
