“It seemed endless. We are lucky that the final went quite quickly and that we got rid of it quickly," Evenepoel told Sporza. "This victory is good after a bit of bad luck yesterday. We showed today that we simply have a super strong lead-out.”
“Unprecedented world-class” -Fabio Jakobsen praises Remco Evenepoel lead out work after first win of the season in Stage 2 of Vuelta a San Juan
On the opening day Evenepoel was critical of the lack of safety in the finale, where he almost hit a fan on the side of the road and Jakobsen was absent from the sprint. Michael Morkov finished second, but the team looked for more and yesterday Jakobsen managed to get the desired leadout and stage victory.
Today's stage will be more tricky to control for a bunch sprint, however Evenepoel himself may be a contender for the stage if attacks come in the finale.
