Egan Bernal faces a long spell of recovery and rehabilitation due to the multiple fractures he suffered after hitting a bus while training in Colombia, but his agent Giuseppe Acquadro is hoping that the Ineos Grenadiers rider can eventually return to racing and continue his successful Grand Tour career. 

Bernal was born on January 13, the same day as Marco Pantani. The Italian suffered an exposed tibia and fibula fractured in his lower left leg after being hit by a car in 1995 but recovered and went on to win the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France in 1998.
