Contrary to several reports, Egan Bernal’s brother won’t move to Europe to race under the tutelage of Gianni Savio, at least for another three years.

Ronald Bernal is just 15 at present and famously celebrated his older brother’s 2019 Tour de France victory on the Champs Élysées. He is considered to have some of the same talents as his older sibling but will not head to Europe until he is at least 18.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
