A new Colombian cyclist will try to make his way in Europe in 2024. This is Roland Bernal, brother of Egan Bernal, who has just signed a two-season contract with the AC Monaco team.

This is a continental team that recently announced the extension of fellow Colombian Kevin Velásquez and that, according to colleagues at La Rueda de Colombia, has confirmed the hiring of Ronald Bernal until 2025.

Great news without a doubt for Egan Bernal, having his brother next to him in Europe competing to try to gain a foothold in professional cycling while he tries to fight again for great victories in an exciting 2024 season.

Ronald, 18, has signed for the UC Monaco team, a team that has the support of the Monaco Cycling Federation and which aims to develop young talents.

The young Ronald Bernal is not a newcomer to European cycling, as he has participated in several races with the Italian team Regia Congressi Seiecom Valdarno, including the Trofeo Comune di Vertova – Pietro Merelli Memorial (1.1), one of the most prestigious events. from the junior calendar. Although he was not able to finish that race, Ronald demonstrated his potential and his bravery by competing with the best in his category.

Unlike his brother Egan, who is a born climber and who has made history by winning the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia, Ronald Bernal has more of a ‘rouleur’ profile, that is, a roller.

Specialists in the matter affirm that Ronald is a runner who defends himself well on the flat and has good speed. His dream is to one day succeed in Paris-Roubaix, the classic cobblestone race that is one of the toughest and most spectacular in the world.

Ronald wants to follow in the footsteps of his brother Egan, and now he will have the opportunity to continue growing and learning at UC Monaco, a team that will give him the opportunity to race on the European circuit and rub shoulders with the best.
