Egan Bernal has reiterated his claim for a leadership role at Team Ineos for the Tour de France, predicting that 'we'll see right from the opening stages who is the strongest'. 

Bernal also said he is keen to ride Strade Bianche if racing returns on August 1 and wants to focus solely on the Tour de France in 2020 so he can be fresh for a possible Giro d'Italia-Tour de France double in 2021.
