Forget what I wrote here. He should have joined Ineos and beat Bernal in Paris probably :D

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Friday 10.Aug 20:13, 2018
I'm sure he'll be ok. Altho I do agree with John that perhaps Axeon was the better choice for 2019.

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Friday 10.Aug 17:36, 2018
TBF, Lefevere is a great manager, but not a miracle worker.

And if it's true about Evenepoel leaving Anderlecht after a pretty minor and common bad luck (losing his spot in the first team), than I also question his mental stability.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Friday 10.Aug 08:01, 2018
If that's the case he should have done his year with Axeon.

TomBoonenFanboy [TeamBE] Friday 10.Aug 05:27, 2018
I think you guys underestimate Patrick Lefevere! He'll do the best he can to keep Evenepoel with his feet on the ground and having him race in smaller races first. I'm pretty sure he won't be in any WT race yet next year, or perhaps at the tail end of the season in the Tour of Turkey or Guangxi. But he'll probably be a member of the crew that races in the Napoleon Games cup and other smaller races like the Hammer Series.

he is already stuck-up , it can only go wrong ...

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Tuesday 7.Aug 07:56, 2018
I expect to see him on the ground a lot next year. He has never raced in a jam-packed peloton at high speed. He is missing a lot of the basics and he even said he attacks early because he is not comfortable in the pack.

Juniores racing dominance only means that he have a great engine. Many pro cyclist have that but only a few win a lot of races.
When he step up to WT he will have everything to prove, you can only guarantee that he is going to be in the mix to compete for big results

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Tuesday 7.Aug 05:14, 2018
I've a feeling his pro career can only go terribly wrong, after it will kick off next year. Thanks to his juniors dominance the expecations are sky high and not just within the public. Evenepoel is expected to be the new Eddy Merckx and himself expects to compete for the highest GC spots in the GT's within three years. With this anything less than a Peter Sagan kind of pro career start in terms of dominance and winning is a failure.

His own idol is Alaphilippe. Seems a more reasonable goal to firstly become as good as him.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Thursday 5.Jul 15:40, 2018
He has a agreement with Axeon, but Quickstep has also joined in and have started communication with Axel and Remco's father. So 2019 Axeon -> stagiaire at Quickstep and then full move to WT in 2020 seems to be in the books

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 5.Jul 12:21, 2018
Yes he is. Don't think he is allowed to do it this year though as some media suggested since junior riders can't do that according to UCI regulations.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 5.Jul 09:24, 2018
Is he allowed to ride in the senior ranks next year?
