After overcoming the severe injuries caused by the serious accident in January and making a slight return to competition in minor races in Europe, Egan Bernal has begun highly rigorous physical training with his popular ‘apocalypse’ in Colombia.
The numbers and watts reached in the climb have surprised cycling analysts considering the consequences of his injury; and a great state of form is expected to face the Tour de France against Vingegaard and Pogacar. Along these lines, Luis Pasamontes, the well-remembered Spanish cyclist who retired from the Movistar Team, has expressed his opinion.
“Egan Bernal is working hard, very hard. Almost 39km/h on average and 270km, I don’t care if he’s done work behind the bike, it’s flying. He’s going to be the cyclist he was again, I’m convinced. He deserves it and cycling He will appreciate it,” Pasamontes reviewed on Twitter.
Pasamones is remembered as one of the best gregarious in the history of Spanish cycling, competing with teams like Relax-Fuenlabrada, Unibet and more than 5 years in the Movistar Team. He now writes books and comments on cycling for the media.
Egan Bernal continues to train in Colombia ahead of the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina, there it will be his debut of the 2023 season to go progressively in the European competitions for a week and thus arrive in great physical condition at the Tour de France.
