Remco Evenepoel has said he is aiming for a "good Tour" and some "nice results" at the Tour de France, as Soudal Quick-Step announced their team for the race on Tuesday.

Notably, though, the Belgian and his team stopped short of saying they were aiming for the win. This might be partly explained by the fact that the 24-year-old is riding his debut Tour, and because he is on his way back from injuries suffered in the mass crash at Itzulia Basque Country in April.
