The great fear seems to have passed.

Remco Evenepoel had a nightmarish day at the Giro d’Italia, with no less than two falls during the fifth stage that started in Atripalda and ended at the finish in Salerno. The Belgian, former pink jersey, first ended up on the ground to avoid a dog, then took another tumble with 7 km to go. This, however, should not affect his participation in the pink race.

Indeed, his entourage at the end of the day confirmed early indications that there were no physical consequences after Evenepoel’s two falls. “We certainly have to do the appropriate checks, but there should be nothing broken,” was the communication. His presence in the sixth stage, the one scheduled for Thursday, is currently guaranteed.
