In an interview this weekend Lefevere acknowledges that it was the team who has failed Remco and that Remco is not to blame. He just does everything he is told to do.I don't blame Remco, i feel the team could have done a better job guiding him. Again.
Lefevere says that his own doctors and the staff in Herentals reacted too optimistically.
Nevertheless they still aim for the Giro. If Remco can get a basic condition level, Lefevere would like him to start even if he's not in top shape, without pressure and without podium ambitions, to learn how he reacts to a Grand Tour.
