Ineos Grenadiers have confirmed in a medical update Thursday that Egan Bernal has made significant progress in his recovery and rehabilitation from a life-threatening collision with a stopped bus just over three weeks ago. However, the team have stated that there is no definitive time line for his return to training.

"Egan is making great progress at home and working with a local rehab clinic where his recovery is going well. At present our medical staff have not set a definitive timeline for when we should expect to see him back on his bike," read a new medical update from Ineos Grenadiers.
