What's the source.??? I can understand skipping Sanremo to do an Altitude camp before Itzulia and LBL. But I don't understand why he doesn't do anymore Ardennes classics. Ben Healy must be feeling very happy seeing the spring plan of remco, pogacar, vingegard , roglic

Only after Liège-Bastogne-Liège will Evenepoel go on an altitude training course for the first time, in the run-up to his first Tour de France. - wielerflits
It's curious to see that Pogacar, Remco will do just one altitude training before the Tour, but Vingegaard always does 2/3 long altitude trainings before the Tour. Maybe he benefits more of the altitude than the others.
I think its a really good schedule. I personally wouldn't ride the Figueira classic and hope that Remco does indeed ride Amstel and Flèche.

Regarding stage races if Remco manages to beat both Vingegård and Roglič in either Itzulia or the Dauphiné it would be a big success just as it would finishing on the Tour podium.

In the one-day race front, I think he will have a great season with the Olympics and Worlds with a suitable route.
