Trio of aces for the Vuelta

The British team will present a stellar formation in the Spanish round with the winner of the Giro and the Olympic golds on the road and MTB, respectively.


The constellation of stars that will bring together this edition of the Tour of Spain (August 14 to September 5) will be historic. And all despite the notable loss of a Tadej Pogacar who decided to avoid the Spanish round in the final stretch of his calendar, after proclaiming himself the winner of the Tour for the second consecutive year. The cycling lover will not suffer for it, since the show will be guaranteed on the asphalt thanks, in large part, to an impressive line-up of the Ineos team that will be led by the trio of aces formed by Egan Bernal, Richard Carapaz and Tom Pidcock. Or what is the same: the last winner of the Giro d'Italia and the current Olympic golds on road and mountain bike, respectively. Almost nothing.

The Colombian will assume the leadership of the British team in his firm goal of completing the 'Triple Crown' (he won the Tour in 2019 and the Giro in 2021), in a duel with Primoz Roglic, as the main adversary, which promises to be exciting. For his part, the Ecuadorian will be his squire for the high mountain days, but with the possibility of assuming command of the squad in case Bernal falters. For the British talent (22 years old) it will be his debut in a grand tour, where he may have some freedom of movement to conquer stages. The three weeks of the race will also be an important test to determine your ability to assault these types of appointments in the future.As if all this were not enough incentive, and to fight with other great teams that have already been announced (such as Bahrain, Movistar or Jumbo), the Ineos team will not abandon their 'trio of aces' to their fate, but will surround them with a squad of high-level gregarious: Adam Yates (winner of Volta a Catalunya this year), Dylan van Baarle (Across Flanders 2021), Pavel Sivakov, Salvatore Puccio and Jhonatan Narváez. Jumbo, Movistar, Bahrain, Ineos ... Does anyone give more?
