Egan Bernal finishes eighth overall in the Tour of Hungary

“The pilots will give 8 laps to the circuit for the fans”, It was part of the statement issued by the Tour of Hungary after analyzing with the competing teams the weather situation in the area that could cause more falls for the runners. By joint decision, they preferred to go out and ride the circuit without competing for anything and only for the spectators, a walk that left the general as it was with Marc Hirschi leader and winner. While, Egan Bernal was the best of the Colombians in eighth place, 22 seconds behind.

Fifth race for Egan in 2023 and third that he may finish, after Itzulia and Romandie. Once again he repeated eighth place overall and showed his evolution to soon reach one hundred percent. He was very active despite the fall on the first day, in the queen test he attacked several times, but it was not enough before the strength that the Swiss Hirschi showed to remain the leader. Yesid Pira finished 54th at over 15 minutes; while Álvaro Hodeg was in 111 at 38′: 24”.

INEOS highlighted what was done by its runners in the competition. Ben Tulett was second on the overall podium and Egan finished inside the top 10. Great performance from the British team that, although they arrived as the favorite of the competition with the Colombian, they knew that it was a test so that Bernal could continue picking up the pace for his greatest challenge, which will be the Tour de France.

The Tour of Norway that begins at the end of May would be the next competition for the Colombian from INEOS who continues to add points in the UCI ranking. Then I would be in Switzerland before the Tour de France starts.
