Egan Bernal: "The Alps are more of Colombian style than the Pyrenees"

July 23 rd 2019 - 18:45

“It’s been a very hot day and I noted it, although I must admit that I enjoy this kind of conditions. As far as Geraint Thomas is concerned, he’s fine. He crashed but with no consequence and I don’t think he’ll suffer from it in the coming days. We’re approaching the Alps. The climbs there are longer and steeper. They’re more of the Colombian style of climbing. I’m ready and I feel good. However, we’re in the third week and anything can happen. Team Ineos is solid but other teams will have to handle some responsibilities too.”
