Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?
Bernal Wins Tour de Suisse
After Chris Froome’s unfortunate crash it looked like an open invitation for Geraint Thomas to defend his Tour de France title. However, Team INEOS has another strong rider waiting for his chance. The rising star from Colombia, Egan Bernal, won Tour de Suisse and didn’t rule out having a go at the Grand Boucle as well.

I don’t choose to say that I’m the favourite,” Bernal said. “In any case I will go with Thomas who will be our leader and I will try to help him and if he is better than me I will help him. I don’t have any problem helping him, I am only 22 so I have a lot of Tours ahead of me.”
Bernal was unable to ride in this year’s Giro after breaking his collarbone in a training ride. Nevertheless, it looks like he’s back on form. Plus, he already has experience in taking over the leader position after Thomas. Should make for an interesting Tour even without Chris Froome. Who do you favour?
I hope the Belgian TT nationals are televised, gonna be a cracker of a race, if Wellens wins though my theory is scientifically disproven.
