There will be no duel Bernal-Pogacar in Andalusia

Cycling fans will have to wait to see again on the roads between Egan Bernal and Tadej Pogacar. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and in the absence of official confirmation from the Ineos team, Bernal will not start this Wednesday in the Vuelta a Andalucíaas originally planned.

The Italian outlet points out that the reason Bernal will not compete in Andalusia is that the Colombian cyclist, Tour de France champion in 2019, is still suffering from knee discomfort that already forced him to leave at the end of January during the Vuelta a San Juan and that also made him not compete in the Colombian National Championships.

In this way, cycling fans will have to wait to see the expected duel between Pogacar and Bernal. A confrontation that could not take place in 2022 after Bernal’s serious accident, which left him without competing for almost the entire year. You have to go back to the spectacular 2021 edition of Tirreno-Adriatico to find the last duel between Bernal and Pogacar, in which ‘Pogi’ managed to win a stage and the overall while Bernal had to settle for fourth overall. .
