Remco Evenepoel will see his new Soudal - Quick-Step World champion's jersey debuted at the Vuelta a San Juan next week, as the Belgian team confirmed their lineup for the Argentinian race which also features Fabio Jakobsen.
Back after several seasons due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Vuelta a San Juan is back on the menu, with six flat stages and a mountaintop finish to be a good place for many riders to start their season calmly. Remco Evenepoel won't start the race with exact ambitions but is likely the man to beat on the roads of Argentina, where there will be a peloton featuring many continental teams.
