Next year’s Tour de France will have Egan Bernal as one of its top contenders. The champion of the French race in 2019 confirmed that he will be in the 2022 edition with his team the Ineos Grenadiers. He will not seek the double championship of the Giro d’Italia.

“Will Egan be in the Tour de France?”, was the question of the Mundo Ciclístico Magazine at a trade event last weekend. Bernal answered without hesitation, his big goal next season will be the title of the most important race in the world.

“The answer is yes. It is clear that we are going to focus all our preparation and efforts thinking about competing in the Tour de France this year. It is time to return to resume the path that we found in 2019 and from which we have separated a bit, “said the 24-year-old cyclist.

Regarding his physical condition and the back problems that hit him during the last time, Egan assured that he is in perfect condition. “I think I have completely recovered, but nevertheless we have been monitoring the evolution through physiotherapy sessions, strengthening with gym attendance. Hoping to start the cycling year and continue with nothing that could affect performance on the bike. “

The current Giro champion will return to Europe in December to start training for 2022. The concentration of his team will be in Spain.
