Remco Evenepoel has warned his rivals the best is yet to come after winning the Volta ao Algarve to secure his second race win of 2020.
The 20-year-old produced a brilliant ride in the individual time trial to clinch victory, not only beating his overall rivals but also setting a course record to pip world trial champion Rohan Dennis by 10 seconds.
Evenepoel also won stage two of the race along with the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina earlier this year, with his impressive form leading to suggestions that he could contend for the Giro d’Italia in May.
But he said: "The Volta ao Algarve is not a three-week race like the Giro. That is something altogether different. I'm just working towards my goals now, and I want to be prepared in two months.

"I'm not in the best shape yet but I still have time, there's still a long way to go but I'm already happy with where I'm at now.
"I said I wanted to come to Algarve, I did my very best and performed as well as possible. Next up is Tirreno-Adriatico and we'll see how we go there. It's about going step by step, race by race, then we'll see in the end what the season brings."
The Deceuninck-QuickStep rider also said it was rewarding to beat Dennis, having lost to him by over a minute at the Yorkshire Worlds time trial last year.
Evenepoel: ‘I knew every corner, every hole in the road’
"Beating Rohan Dennis is very difficult, so that makes it twice as nice.
"For the general classification, I just had to ride as fast as possible. That I won the stage as well is an added bonus."
