Egan Bernal: “The Alps will be three days of fighting”

July 24 th 2019 - 18:50

“The Tour de France can be won in any of the three coming stages in the Alps. All climbers will try something: Pinot, Landa… We won’t be watching each other. The most difficult is to keep the legs for attacking after 17 days of competition. How we will move as Team Ineos will depend on our feelings. If we don’t have the legs, we won’t be able to do anything interesting. Alaphilippe looks to me like a solid leader. We all thought he’d lose the yellow jersey in the Pyrenees and he didn’t. He still looks very competitive now. He’s one more rival to take into account.”
