Egan Bernal writes a new chapter in his career at the 2023 Tour de France. The only Colombian cyclist to win the Gala tour (he won it in 2019) is experiencing, in his own words, “the most special Tour”.

Bernal, who nearly risked his life in a serious accident a year and a half ago, embodied a halo of hope that infects his teammates and all fans in this year’s edition of the Tour.

The man from the Ineos team successfully completed the first three days. And now this week (Thursday and Sunday) he is preparing for two mountain stages. But before the fourth phase begins, Tour de France endorsed Egan Bernal. This was reported in this Monday newsletter.

The Tour de France organization said in an official report released this Monday that it has sanctioned three riders: Egan Bernal (Ineos), Ramon Sinkeldam (Alpecin) and Chris Harper (Jayco).

“Cyclists were found dumping trash outside designated areas,” the document says.

So things Egan Bernal was sanctioned 500 Swiss francs (2,328,346 Colombian pesos) and deducted 25 points from the UCI ranking.

According to ‘ESPN’ commentator Oscar Restrepo, in the event of a repeat offence, Egan would receive an additional minute overall as punishment.
