Rumours Egan Bernal will be back racing at La Vuelta
6 months after his life-threatening accident running into the back of a bus, Egan Bernal could be back racing at the Vuelta a Espana this August
In an interview with Radio MARCA, Vuelta a Espana race director Javier Guillén said that Egan Bernal might be at the start in Utrecht on the 19th of August.
This is unconfirmed and with no official statement from his team, this does come as a sign of confidence that the Colombian will be back to competition soon.
Bernal has been training in Andorra over the last few weeks together with several INEOS Grenadiers teammates who are scheduled to race La Vuelta.
Although this is not indicative that he would be at the start, the chances of this being real seem increasingly higher.
It is rumoured that he could be back to racing at the Vuelta a Burgos in the coming week, however the team is still deciding on the best path for the Colombian.
Earlier this month, he said he was hopeful of racing the late-season Italian classics.
