Son of Germán Bernal and Flor Gómez
He was born on January 13, 1997 in the city of Bogota.
He took his first steps at one year of age.
His first word he said was Father.
The first time he rode a bicycle was at age five. It was yellow and heavy.
The first race was at age nine, at the Institute of Recreation and Sports of Zipaquirá.
He was going with his parents and saw a lot of children with helmets and bicycles. César Bermúdez, a family friend, lent the money to pay the inscription.
He won easily. They gave him a trophy, a uniform and a scholarship to train
From that day he became convinced of something: "I want to be a cyclist." And he achieve it.
Today, with 22 years and having built his own style, Egan Bernal is the first Colombian to win a Tour de France after one of the most even races of all time.
