Remco Evenepoel may start 2024 in South America once again - "We could start with the Tour Colombia"

Remco Evenepoel began his 2023 campaign at the Vuelta a San Juan and seemingly has enjoyed his time. The time-trial World Champion may be keen on starting another season in South America and he may do so at the Tour Colombia.

“We could start with the Tour Colombia at the beginning of February, it is a realistic hypothesis," Patrick Lefevere said in an interview with La Dernière Heure. In this interview he discussed many topics such as Evenepoel's readiness for the Tour de France, his perhaps too quick recovery from Covid-19 back in May and how that may have affected his preparation towards the Vuelta a Espana. Still, the team now looks onwards into 2024.

The race was created in 2018 and ran until 2020. It was an instant success as the early dates provided an opportunity for the nation's athletes to start their season at home, before travelling to Europe. The likes of Egan Bernal, Nairo Quintana, Miguel Ángel López, Sergio Higuita and Richard Carapaz were all among those who every years provided a passionate spectacle in the roads of Colombia - a country where cycling is incredibly popular.

Now, the event returns in 2024 and may host once again a strong array of stars. Among them may be Remco Evenepoel, whose goals for the year are yet to be decided on. Nevertheless the racing in altitude and the mountains may fit what he has in store for the year.
