Christmas Day: for many, a day to relax and be merry, to spend time with loved ones, maybe fit in a leisurely spin or an hour on Zwift if you are that way inclined. Or, in the case of Remco Evenepoel, a day to grind out a 100km ride in the wind and rain of a Belgian winter. 

As spotted by Het Nieuwsblad, the recently-crowned world champion posted a big ride to his Strava on Sunday. Heading out before 9am on Christmas morning, Evenepoel tackled 102km and three hours of riding in his native East Flanders.
