How dare he? 😡

Remco has however since apologized personally for those words and for both of them the case is closed and there are no more hard feelings.

Remco-splaining will reach a whole other level. Just earlier today in Danish cycling twitter, I saw some Belgian rando lecturing on the proper interpretation of Evenepoel (I guess he had no problem interpreting Danish):

I threw it in Google Translate, it was very poorly translated, but if he means that Evenepoel wanted to say that Skjelmose only got past him because he didn’t see him, that’s bs.
 
Translation of the Danish post:
You're right in principle, but by implication, Evenepoel left no doubt that in his opinion it was a pure coincidence that Skjelmose slipped past him - and certainly not a fair result.

Remco did not say it was unfair. He said he was looking to the right and therefore did not see Skjelmose. No more, no less. You shouldn't be adding any more meaning to his words than what he said.
 
Evenepoel is just playing into the Blond Assassin meme.

Evenepoel reads CyclingNews forum confirmed.
