"I'm really looking forward to meeting him at the Tour" - Remco Evenepoel will try to stop Tadej Pogacar's Giro-Tour double attempt

Tadej Pogacar's phenomenal surge at Giro d'Italia didn't pass the eyes of his opponents. The 10-minute margin over the rest of the field looks terrifying, but it's also a challenge for Remco Evenepoel who is curious how he'll compare against the Slovenian in a month.

The Belgian spoke about it in a media press ahead of Critérium du Dauphiné, where as he claims, he's to support his Soudal - Quick-Step teammates and see where he stands at the moment himself.

"It's a big question for everybody how he's going to recover after the Giro, but I think he did a great race and he will be ready for the Tour, that's for sure. So it wouldn't surprise me if he wins the Tour de France after winning the Giro."

"If there's a guy that can do it, it's going to be Pogi," Evenepoel said, adding that the Giro "was actually very impressive to watch - amazing to watch, sometimes boring to watch as well, because the race was done with 60k to go, so to speak."

"I'm really looking forward to meeting him at the Tour and I'm curious to see how he will develop over the next month. I think he's professional enough to know what to do and his team as well - so it wouldn't surprise me if he's there already from day one to day twenty-one In the Tour as well - if there's one guy that can do the double, it's gonna be him I think."
