Egan Bernal has said he doesn't think he'll sacrifice himself for a team-mate if he's on top form at the Tour de France, and neither does he expect anyone else to for him.

The Colombian has said the road will decide which of Ineos' three Tour winners will lead the team at the French race and that he understands the difficulty for the team of having three active champions on the same roster.

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.
