Team Ineos' Sebastian Henao is looking forward to return to competition, and he confirmed he will be doing the Giro d'Italia in support of Richard Carapaz.

The Colombian rider talked to the Spanish cycling podcast La Bicicleta about the continuation of his plans for 2020. "The initial idea was to do the Giro [d'Italia, Ed.] and it remains like that, with Richard Carapaz, who will be the leader of the team.

"I won't be in the Tour [de France, Ed.] but I will start in other competitions to prepare for the Giro. I think the first race that I will ride will be the Tour de Pologne."

Henao talked about the rumours that pointed at the departure of his teammate Chris Froome from his team. "I don't know anything about that, the rumours are there but I haven't talked to him, and he is the only one who knows if he wants to remain here or if he wants to change," he explained. "We are all professional riders and it is very important to think about the team, we have to ride as a team.

"I am a very fortunate cyclist to be around this kind of riders and it is an extra motivation for me to be able to work for leaders like these, it is amazing to work for Egan (Bernal), Froome, Richard or (Geraint) Thomas, they are great leaders and great people. Now that I am a teammate of Froome and work for him, I have got to know the humble person he is and that makes him even greater."
