Holidays are over for Remco Evenepoel.

The Belgian superstar is already training on Spain’s Costa Blanca after a honeymoon and busy off-season that came in the wake of his historic Vuelta a España and world title victories.

Evenepoel, 22, is settling in a new base in Spain partly for its mild climate and excellent training, but also to get away from the bustle of his country.

He will join his Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl teammates for a team camp next month, but details of his race schedule are already confirmed.

The Belgian outlet reported that Evenepoel will debut in 2023 at the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina in January. Het Laatste Nieuws reports.
