While Geraint Thomas’ contract situation remains both unsigned and unclear, and Ineos Grenadiers have yet to announce their Grand Tour plans for 2022, Egan Bernal has reiterated his desire to return to the Tour de France and compete for the yellow jersey. 

The 2019 Tour de France winner was forced out of the 2020 edition due to a back injury and then skipped this year’s race after winning the Giro d’Italia in May.
