The winner of the 2019 edition of the Tour de France Egan Bernal (Team Ineos) is in Colombia preparing for the restart of the season with one objective in mind.

Many things have been discussed and rumoured about Ineos and the next edition of the Tour de France -which will be held between the 28th of August and the 20th of September. With the return to shape of Chris Froome, everything points out at a triple captaincy of the four-time winner of the French race, the winner of the 2018 edition Geraint Thomas and Bernal.

Froome wants to be with the greatest cyclists in history and celebrate the victory for the fifth time while the other two riders would want to win if for a second time. "There is nothing like winning the Tour de France and what comes next is to win another," said Bernal to French broadcaster France TV Sport. "It is like a drug, because if you win it once, you want to do it over and over again. Once you have tasted it, you want more and more, you never get enough.

"When you win a Tour de France, you want to win it a second time and then a third time... and stablish a new record."

The Colombian rider expects to return to Europe in the middle of July in a special flight organised by the country's cycling Federation to allow the riders to come back to competition at the highest level. "I will bring the show that the public is waiting for and I will be absolutely prepared for the race," Bernal explained. "I will give the best of me, the best of Egan Bernal."
