Bernal, Carapaz, Yates headline strong Ineos team at the Vuelta

An abundance of talent fills Ineos Grenadiers squad for the 2021 Vuelta a Espana as the British team will be looking to unseat Primoz Roglic in the general classification.

Egan Bernal will share leadership with Richard Carapaz, Pavel Sivakov and Adam Yates, while Olympic gold medallist Tom Pidcock will make his Grand Tour debut in the Spanish race.

Bernal makes his first appearance in the Vuelta a Espana and the 24-year-old Colombian hopes to complete the grand tour treble there. His preparation was not ideal: last week Bernal crashed in the Vuelta a Burgos, but in the final stage he showed signs of recovery with a 4th place. Adam Yates was also in that crash.

Providing even more firepower for the squad will be Pavel Sivakov, Jhonatan Narváez, Salvatore Puccio, Dylan van Baarle.
