Scary pictures: - Hold your mouth, you are alive

A broken pelvis and a lung contusion.

the Verdict was brutal, but the fact is that Remco Evenepoel got off lightly from his horrific crash during the Lombardy Around.

The belgian bicycle firm could in the worst case have paid the biggest price of all, when he crashed out over a bridge in the middle of the descent from the Muro di Sormano.

Deceuninck-Quick-Step rider fell more feet down in a ravine, after which a medical team stormed to the site.

the 20-year-old Evenepoel was conscious, but the pictures from the rescue showed with all clarity how fragile life is. Therefore, it is also an unimportant parenthesis in the large perspective, that the phenomenon comes into action more in 2020.

- What is happening with his season? I don't care. Complete. I am glad that he is still alive. He is going to watch a lot of tv the rest of the season, says Deceuninck-Quick-Step manager, Patrick Lefevere to Het Nieuwsblad.

He was one of the first few people who have been in contact with the rider after the crash. And the conversation between the two says a great deal about the mentality, Evenepoel is practicing in his ambitious, fearless and offensive approach to the sport.

- He said 'sorry' to me. I replied 'keep your mouth. You are alive', says Lefevere.

Even has the manager far from silent when it comes to the dissatisfaction of the descent, which was the terminus of the Evenepoel. Lefevre tells in the interview that he has long tried to shout out to the organizers of the Lombardy region Round up.

- I have several times told the UCI and the organization that this type of descents are possible, but nothing will change. I can't even talk about it anymore. Roughly speaking, we could have had two deaths in a week with Fabio Jakobsen (that crashed in Poland, red.) and Remco, says Lefevre.

Like the case was for Fabio Jakobsen is it also the plan, to teammate Evenepoel must continue his treatment in his homeland, when he is ready to be discharged from hospital in Italy.

There are already booked a private plane, which is carrying the wrecked rider home, but taking no chances, why Evenepoel will be in Italian, because some hours yet.

Lombardy Round was won by Jakob Fuglsang, who, in lonely majesty drove first over the line in Como.
