Giro d’Italia: Remco Evenepoel flies across time trial course for victory and first maglia rosa

Remco Evenepoel (Soudal-QuickStep) drew first blood at the 2023 Giro d’Italia, storming to victory in the stage 1 time trial to take the first pink jersey as overall leader.

It was a superlative display from the young Belgian, who not only put 22 seconds into Hour Record holder Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) but also dealt huge damage to his general classification rivals, notably putting 43 seconds into Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma).
