Egan Bernal did not finish the full course of the Giro della Toscana, test that took place yesterday on 199 and in which Marc Hirschi was the winner and Daniel Martínez, third, the best Colombian.
Bernal returned to racing recently in the return to denmark and then was present at the return to germanybut in both tests it did not finish.

there is no eagerness
In both he worked for his colleagues, as they always did for him.
In Germany, this work had an effect, as the British group kept the title, after the general victory of Adam Yates.
On January 24, Egan Bernal suffered a serious accident in which he almost lost his life, after colliding with the back of a bus on the road between Bogota and Tunja, spent 14 days in the Sabana University Clinic and underwent six operations.
After a long and painful recovery, Bernal returned to competition in Denmark, but, as usual, his results have not been the best, for which he has received criticism and others have set off alarms.
The Ineos team cyclist was important in the first part of the tour in Tuscany, he helped his compatriot Daniel Martinez so that he was ahead and disputed the first position.
The goal is not to win
Egan Bernal has felt the lack of blanking, the coupling again to the races and it is clear that he has not been able to appear.
The most important thing for this time is that he continues to take shape, recognizing what he once did perfectly, but the triumphs are left for later.
No one knows if he will be the same runner he was before the accident, the one who can measure himself face to face with the Tadej Pogacar, Primoz Roglic and now Jonas Vingegaard and Remco Evenepoel, the great dominators of the races. His future is very uncertain, but the great benefit is that he is already running, because his recovery period has progressed very quickly.
Bernal was expected to start racing in these Italian classics, but his return came early, and that is already a very positive thing.
The criticisms to which he has been subjected in those days are unfair, since the idea, as he himself said, is to recover the path he has lost.
He has not been in any compromising situation in the competitions, his work has always been that of a gregarious and he has not had the role of leader, because that is how his team wants him. The idea is to go slowly, not rush the times.
Bernal’s three retirements are normal, since the idea in these competitions is for him to rediscover himself as a cyclist, to ride kilometers without risking his physical integrity.
It is known that he will return to the country in October to undergo an operation, in which “material from his operated right leg” will be removed, according to Bernal himself in recent days.
The idea is that he also runs the Tour of Croatia (September 27 to October 2) and then be in the Tour of Lombardy, on October 8, the last competition on the World Tour calendar.
Bernal returns to the scene this Thursday, in the Coppa Sabatini, a one-day Italian classic over 198 kilometres.
He will be next to, again, Martínez and Brandon Rivera, and other Colombians like Esteban Chaves, Diego Camargo, Einer Rubio, Iván Ramiro Sosa and Santiago Umba.
