Ineos Grenadiers have confirmed that Egan Bernal will make his European season debut at the Volta a Catalunya next week, despite organisers of the Settimana Coppi e Bartali having already announced that the Colombian would be starting their race.

In a press release issued by GS Emilia on Monday, Bernal was listed among the marquee names set to race the five-day stage race, which runs from March 21-25. However, Ineos announced on Tuesday afternoon that the 26-year-old would instead head up their squad for the fifth WorldTour stage race of the season in Spain on March 20-26.
