The boss of Bora wants Remco Evenepoel on his team and may go so far as to buy the young Belgian's current squad in order to acquire the 21-year-old's services.

That's according to Patrick Lefevere, who says Bora-Hansgrohe's manager Ralph Denk has told him that the boss of Bora, Willi Bruckbauer, is very keen to have Evenepoel race in his set-up.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
