Remco Evenepoel crashed during today’s stage and, despite the conspicuous abrasions on his right side, the leader of the general classification at the end of the day said he was fine. «The bike is certainly worse than me. I’m fine, I crashed on a very slippery curve ».

Remco was well positioned in the leading positions of the group when he crashed, lost control of the bike, fell to the ground and in an instant he was reminded of the accident at the Giro di Lombardia. «My intention was to cut the curve a bit but I must have turned too much. My teammates had to brake, but I preferred not to because then I would have gone outside and risked having a crash like in Lombardia. In the end I just slipped and immediately recovered. As soon as I left, I told the team that I was fine and that I only had scratches. Two years ago I went through a much more dramatic episode, so today’s one is a peanut in comparison. I immediately felt that it was nothing serious. The worst was actually my hands, which have several wounds. I still have to keep the handlebars of the bike for another two weeks, maybe I should start wearing gloves from now on ».

In fact, when he runs, Remco does not wear the classic cycling gloves, but he is not the only one and also riders like Mathieu van der Poel and Tadej Pogacar almost always run with bare hands, while Van Aert always runs with gloves on their hands. Many have explained that in high temperatures, gloves tend to stick with sweat and give a feeling of warmth that annoys the runner, particularly when he is busy cornering. The gloves, however, are born with the aim of protecting the hands and in yesterday’s fall Remco Evenepoel, reported many abrasions, which he could have avoided by wearing gloves.
