Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) has shown his new jersey of the time trial European champion just before heading to the Deutschland Tour.

The last weeks have been very successful for the young talent with a victory in the Clasica San Sebastian and the time trial of the European championships. The 19-year-old flew in the circuit of Alkmaar, the Netherlands, and took his first elite European title just days after the accident in which his fellow countryman Bjorg Lambrecht lost his life in Poland.

"I had a good feeling already during the warm-up," Evenepoel explained. "I was really focused, as I wanted to get the maximum out of my race. It had been a real cruel week for cycling with the loss of Bjorg Lambrecht and I wanted to take those stars for him and also for my former teammate, Stef Loos.

"I was focused, ready and gave absolutely everything with them in my mind. In the end, the moment that I knew I had won, the emotions came out of my whole body and the feelings I had were a mix of positive and sad vibes."

The neo-pro star is ready to wear the European jersey in individual time trials for the next year. "The win in Alkmaar was really special, one that I will never forget," he said.

"As I said before, I was really motivated and during the race, I felt good and comfortable on my new Shiv, which helped me achieve this extraordinary performance. To get this win in my first pro year it's a dream for sure and I'm very happy to wear this suit for the next 12 months."
