Egan Bernal may have only just worked far enough through his recovery to ride outside again but on Saturday the Ineos Grenadiers rider will be back to pedalling indoors. Bernal will take part in a virtual mass participation ride which is being held as a gesture of thanks for the outflow of support after his January training crash.

It was little more than two months ago that Bernal was in hospital facing up to surgery and a challenging recovery path after he fractured vertebrae, his right femur, right patella, several ribs and also suffered chest trauma and a punctured lung. Each recovery landmark along the way – from taking first steps, to pedalling on an exercise bike and riding outside – has been welcomed with thousands upon thousands of messages of support on his social media posts.
