Egan Bernal, without a defined date for his return

“With Egan I’m not putting any expectations on him at all”Rod Ellingworth, deputy director of Ineos, commented days ago about the current situation of the Colombian who is recovering from a “bruise around the knee”, which prevented him from finishing the Tour of San Juan and participating in two more competitions that he had on the calendar. On March 5 he starts the Paris-Nice race in which he would be, however ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ assures that his presence is in doubt.

“Sources told us that it has not yet been decided when Egan will compete again. Until now, Paris-Nice (March 5-12) remains a question mark for him.”reported the Italian media. The Colombian at the beginning of February published for the last time how his recovery was going with one of the Ineos therapists.

Ineos has been prudent despite Egan’s desire to return to racing soon. That is why they also avoid putting pressure on him and although the Colombian’s desire is to reach one hundred percent in the Tour de France, for now for the British squad it is Daniel Felipe Martínez who could assume the role of leader. However there are several months left before the race starts.

Paris-Nice would be his next and demanding challenge, as Tadej Pogacar and Jonas Vingegaard will also be there. The decision is up to the team that, seeing his physical evolution, could decide to send him to a lower level race so that he can continue adding kilometers. His return to the road is still unknown, but They don’t want to take risks so that on his lap he can show that he is still a top rider.
