Yes and you also have to consider his age. The sport would also be better off if more people would have the MVP approach of having a cheat meal, mainly in the junior and u23 ranks. Way better than someone like Locatelli fatshaming his athletes for having ice cream...

Just to be clear, I wasn't insinuating that he should be starving himself or that he should be living like a monk. He's stated in the past (as i reported in this topic) that it is a conscious dicision of not losing weight yet, untill he is physically fullgrown and until he needs to go lose weight for GT/GC.

His schedule according to HLN:

Currently on altitude until july 22nd. Apparently he had some issue adjusting to altitude the first few days, but now it's going well.

July 24-28 Adriatica Ionica (2.1)
August 3rd Clasica San Sebastian (1.UWT)
29th of august - 1st of september: Deutschland Tour (2.HC) (all but confirmed).

I would have liked to see him go to Utah instead of Germany but maybe that was too soon after San Sebastian, and DQS doesn't ride it normally.

Will be very interesting to see what he does on Tre Cime di Lavaredo at Adriatica Ionica. Not the strongest of fields, so he should be able to light it up there.

No startlist yet. Only "notable" GC candidate so far is Hermans. Last year Sosa won, it'd be interesting if he starts again.

It's such minor race I just can't imagine many big names showing up there. Evenepoel should easily be one of the strongest guys there.

Last year was the "first" edition, with Sosa, Ciccone, Conti... So difficult to predict.

They won't go up to Tre Cime, the finish will at the Lago di Misurina before the start of the hard part.

That's a pretty decent field, actually. Carthy and Masnada were awfully strong earlier this year. Hope it's on Eurosport -- I've only seen Remco race once, at the Belgian tour, and only at the end of the last 2 stages.

Carboni will be the leader for Bardiani, it's one of his big goals. He recently finished 6th on the gc in Occitanie, ahead of Dombrowski and Sivakov.
The field should be decent, I'll be there to watch the MTF.

Interesting. He hasn't been added to the startlist on PCS (and frankly, i don't know him too well to judge).

As you can see in the link, the startlist is maybe only 10% complete and the field is already decent.

If you haven't seen him race other than the Ardennes stage in the BBT, you can find lots online if you want. The best parts of Remco so far: WC junior RR is on UCI's youtube channel (especially entertaining after the crash). There will be recaps of the stage in the Belgium Tour where he takes the blue jersey (with Campenaerts crashing). The Hammer Climb stage is also on youtube i think and also entertaining.
