We'll know once we see a picture of him at the start of dauphine. I hope to see him as sharp as at the Vuelta of '22.
You do know I'm kidding about all this, right? :p I'm sure you do.

I see no reason why he would not be on all-time form for the Tour. He'll be rocking at the Dauphine. So will others. Gonna be a great race.

Please, please, please no crashes...
 
You guys freaking out, do you have any idea how many calories bike riders are having during a long ride? Whats wrong with a piece of cake now instead of a couple of gels? Its like you don't really have any idea of how that stuff works.
I think people are just having fun. Coffee is a pretty common start or pit stop for professionals. Cycling tourists use coffee shops as the equivalent of the Serengeti or ocean for whale watching to dramatic rare animals. Many places all over have people trying to cross paths with pros with coffee and cake as the crossroads. People spend lots of time and money, obsessively to observe wild animals eating cake in Ginora or Mallorca, places in France. Whatever Remco is eating or drinking, is absolutely the right thing for him. For me seeing a rider eating raw pork spread on a delicious roll in a German meat market is a beautiful thing!!

Yes, I know you are joking. SOQ hired the nutrionist from Visma so I have no doubt that person knows what they are doing, and Evenepoel following those plans perfectly.

It’s more that I’m not sure their performance guy, Koen Pelgrim, knows for sure what the best weight is for Evenepoel. That’s why I’m still hoping they made the right decision when it comes to that.

Hey, after several wet, cold stages a couple of tequila shots after dinner and 2 donuts in the morning got me ready to race.
We're talking glazed old fashioned grocery store donuts. The hard stuff. I never weighed more after a stage race than I started so it seemed like a plan.
