The queen stage of the Tour of Poland served as the setting for another exhibition by Remco Evenepoel, recent winner of the Tour of Burgos. The 20-year-old Belgian prodigy claimed victory and took the lead after crowning a 51-kilometer attack and confirming his superiority over the rest of the favorites in the last three mountain difficulties on Saturday.
The Deceuninck-Quick-Step leader outscored Jakob Fuglsang (Astana), Simon Yates (Mitchelton) and Rafa Majka (Bora) by two minutes and had plenty of time to cross the finish line with number 75 in hand. An emotional tribute to Fabio Jakobsen, his teammate, seriously injured in the first stage of this test.
The three laps in which the day had been scheduled, with 48.5 kilometers each, were a piece of cake for Evenepoel, with an infernal pace on the Bukowina Tarzaska ramps, the last ascent of the day.
His attack coincided with the moment when the platoon gobbled up Nathan Haas, Chris Harper, James Whelan, Patryk Stosz and Kamil Malecki. He immediately acquired a 20-second lead that he had already doubled in the next 12 kilometers. So in the absence of 30 kilometers he was already driving a minute of mattress on his pursuers.
The solo effort of the genius of Aalst contrasted with the suffering of Richard Carapaz (Ineos), who on Friday had dressed as a leader. After being involved in a fall in the company of his gregarious Ian Stannard, the Ecuadorian never found the rhythm of persecution. Evenepoel, on the other hand, was able to double his advantage and hold it to the finish.
