The 2023 Colombian National Road Championships are already throbbing, which will be held in Bucaramanga, Egan Bernal wants to go and the fact that he left the Tour of San Juan due to knee pain, set off the alarms, but good news is coming, no ideal, but positive.

The one from Zipaquirá made his debut with a hunger for competition, in the Vuelta a San Juan 2023. To prove himself in the mountains, he had only one day to show that he was fine and he fulfilled it. He did not win in Alto Colorado, but he did finish fourth, beating Remco Evenepoel.

The good feelings remained, but there is a bitter pill to drink because the Colombian withdrew due to knee pain and knowing what has happened, any physical discomfort is one more concern, therefore there is more prevention.

However, it seems that there is good news for Bernal, because facing the Colombian National Road Championships, in Bucaramanga, Ineos sends good news.

“It’s never good to have knee pain, so he always worries a little, but it’s nothing serious. He was evaluated and it is nothing to worry about, so he should recover in the next few days, ”said Xabier Zandio, sports director of Ineos Grenadiers, to the Cyclingnews portal.

“It is important for him to run at home, but we will see this week if he can run or not. It is still possible for him to participate in the National Championships, but that is not what we are thinking about, we are thinking more about the future. We are thinking about the races in Europe and the season in general. And this is not something that is going to change his plans for the rest of the year ”.

The above indicates that there is no seriousness in Egan’s injury, great news, it seems that everything is fine. However, his presence in the Road Nationals is not confirmed.
