The organisers of the Vuelta a España and the Giro d’Italia are hoping Egan Bernal will ride their race after abandoning the Tour de France, while Cyclingnews understands Richard Carapaz will definitely line-up for the Vuelta alongside Chris Froome. 

Bernal is recovering from the fatigue of the Tour de France and undergoing checks and treatment on his back problems at his new European base in Monaco. Any decision on his return to racing in 2020 depends on the results of full medical checks.
