TheThe ocean whips its foam on the frigid shores of the Basque Coast as the Etzulia Basque Country race begins on Monday (and ends on Saturday) with a 7.51-kilometer attempt on steep seaside cliffs where cobblestones, narrow paths and hidden bends will serve as a city starting platform. Not enough to delight pure timers, such as Evenepoel. Returning from a period of training at the Teide Volcano (Tenerife), a recent mandatory passing point, now, for many runners, Brabancon hopes the Quick Step team will bring some relief in these historically challenging times for the Belgian squad. The Basque Country isn’t an end in itself for Evenepoel, but it’s a perfect preparation for his two springtime goals, Brabant Arrow and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
