Egan Bernal (Team Ineos) says he is not yet thinking about which Grand Tour to target in 2020, but admits he is tempted by the mountainous Giro d'Italia route.

The 2020 Giro, the route of which was revealed last week, sits in contrast to the Tour de France with just under 60km of time trialling and long, high altitude mountain stages defining the final week. The Tour meanwhile features shorter, punchier climbing stages with just a single time trial on the penultimate day to the top La Planche des Belles Filles.
