Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Remco Evenepoel will make his grand tour debut at the Giro d'Italia 2020.

In 2019, Evenepoel took a step up to the WorldTour and surprised the world by taking victories in races like the Tour of Belgium, the Clasica San Sebastian and the Time Trial of the European Championships. The Belgian will be 20 years old at the start of the Italian grand tour, but he's not afraid of tackling new challenges.

"I am really looking forward to being present in my first three-week race, the Giro d'Italia, a huge and prestigious event that captures one's imagination," Evenepoel explained. "I am happy that the team have put their faith in me and gave me this amazing opportunity.

"It will be quite a big experience to see how I will feel and cope with the three weeks of demanding racing and the hurdles lying ahead, but at the same time, I'm very excited to just discover the Giro. The plan is to take it day by day, see how things will go, give my best every time and enjoy it while continuing to learn."
