‘The race is far from being over’ – Remco Evenepoel with one stage to go at Paris-Nice



Pre-race favourite Remco Evenepoel cut his deficit by half on the penultimate stage of Paris-Nice after launching numerous attacks on the shortened stage raced under cold and wet conditions. The Belgian champion finished second on the stage and now trails race leader Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates) by 36 seconds with one stage to go at the Race to the Sun.

One day after making an admitted “tactical mistake” by not responding to the stage 6-winning move initiated by Matteo Jorgenson, Evenepoel opened the hostilities in the final five kilometres on the final climb to Madone d’Utelle and lead the chase group across the finish line eight seconds behind stage winner Aleksandr Vlasov (Bora-Hansgrohe).
