During the broadcast of stage 15 of the Giro d’Italia on Caracol Sports, Egan Bernal, the Colombian cyclist who won the Tour de France in 2019 and the Giro d’Italia in 2021, shared his thoughts on the next edition of the Tour de France 2024 and his expected rivalry with Tadej Pogacar. Bernal spoke candidly about his preparations and expectations, highlighting the formidable competition that the UAE Team Emirates rider represents.

It should be remembered that the Slovenian won the Tour de France in 2020 and 2021; and he has proven to be one of the most talented and consistent riders in the peloton today. Fairly Pogacar won the 15th section of this edition of the ‘pink race’ and that is why Goga asked Bernal about what the face to face with the Balkan will be like in the Grand Boucle.

“He is a super strong rider, the Tour is going to be another race. You always have respect for him but I believe that when you are competing against him you have to have respect for him, but without fear and try to do your best. Each one goes to do your race, but you can’t start thinking that you’re going to be second, it seems to me, the race is over until it’s over. At least for me, I think I’m a runner who likes to attack and. To win you have to know that you can lose and I would be willing to lose to win a Tour de France“was the forceful response of the cyclist and boss of the INEOS Grenadiers.
