How do you leave your best rider off the Tour squad? Geraint is nobody's domestique and should not be expected to work for (or wait) for Bernal.

Hey Brailsford, You replaced your top 2 GC riders for this?!? For this Broken down physically and now mentally kid. You just ruined any chance of continuing the British cycling rule! Not to mention, ruining future sponsorships expansion programs. I don't believe you are worth that kind of financial loss! As the Queen would say "off with your head"!

What an absolutely horrible decision to drop Froomy and G for the tour! Richie Port will finish higher than this guy. Team Inenos 2020 = No tour de France victory. Team Inenos Management staff should be Fired! Top teams need mature GC riders not green kids! Don't worry team Inenos, Jumbo Vismo will erase you in 2020!

Ineos definitely knows how to win tours. Formerly Skye, but the buisness side of it . They threw Wiggins under the bus. For Froome. And now bless Bernal .What a Champion. But by throwing Geraint under the same bus. It has finally come back to haunt them. Look at Land a. He was better than Froome and got reeled in and called back. His best chance to win the tour. Tire tracks all over him. Even Jumbo wasted Dumoulin. Take one for the team Tom. How high could he be n the GC? I'm just a guy sitting on my couch. Aren't all sports (Just Win Baby Win)

He will be back.Sagan will be back. Whoever wins is truly deserving. The jersey winners are Champions. But in this covid year of no real preparation. Next year will truly show who can come back and win. Look at Jumbo. The support he had those torturous final KS. Bernal had who? Nobody! Impossible to win without the team. Where is G ? In Italy , almost winning. Everyone knows Bernal only gets stronger as the stages go by. But by himself he is All ready wasted. With the same team from 2019. It would be a different Egan.

He'll come back stronger next year. Ineos is in a transition phase with the departure of froome and the fact that the team is aging and also the death of portal. Bernal at his best would have challenged roglic but its simply not happening for him this year

I'm Colombian and I'm very proud of what he has achieved during his cycling career. Unfortunately, 2020 was not his year, he's human and he's not a robot. He's trying his best but when your heart says go but your legs say no, there's nothing he can do about it. Jumbo has by far the strongest team, Roglic he's one tough rider. Pogacar, a future champion and they are simply stronger than Egan in this tour. Egan you made us (Colombians) proud. There's always next year and hopefully stronger and ready to battle these 2 Slovenians. Keep your chin up Egan, and hopefully you can finish in the top 10.

@Ellis Dunning he is not having a good tour, why, overtraining, maybe he's sick, who knows, never seem him ride this bad before, or he just too tired and his legs are not responding. Roglic and Pogacar are a level above him and Jumbo Visma train is too powerful.

This seems like the first year in a while that Ineos/Sky have been challenged for the yellow jersey and they’re realizing they can’t just rely on covering every attack from every other gc contender. Last year Bernal didn’t have to make any real effort until the last couple stages. This year it’s a completely different story.

If he told his team from the start of the first climb that he didnt have the legs today, im wondering why his team was ordered to guide him to the finish instead of having one of them attempt to stay with the other GC leaders and contend for a stage win. im sure they didnt expect him to lose 7 min. and i guess maybe they though 2-3 min tops and hed still be in it.

It's impossible to dislike Bernal. He's obviously gutted at effectively losing the tour on this stage - but he's big enough to admit there are stronger riders than him this year. Maybe the psychological pressure of being team leader at such an early age has been harder than he expected. Interesting that Froome said he'd have been willing to ride in support. Maybe just his presence and experience would have helped. But a rider of Bernal's talent will certainly come back stronger for this.

I have huge respect for his attitude still smiling on the climb still got time for media and fans. Most elite athletes in this scenario would react very differently. Don't get me wrong great to see a non Ineos dominated tour but also great for cycling as a sport to know Bernal is here for at least a decade
