Egan Bernal: 'I don't know if I'll ride the 2020 Tour de France'

'It's not healthy to 'kill' your head thinking about who is going to be a leader and who is not,' Bernal said

Egan Bernal has said he doesn't know if he will ride the 2020 Tour de France yet and that it will depend on his Ineos team, who will have a roster stacked with GC riders next year.

In sentiments that have been echoed by Ineos riders over the past couple of years as their top riders compete for the leadership role at the Tour, the 22-year-old says his primary concern is doing what is best for the team as a whole.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
