Bernal made his debut for Team Sky in the Tour Down Under as team leader, where he won the young rider classification and finished in 6th place in the overall standings.
In February 2018, Bernal won the Colombian National Time Trial Championships.

Egan Bernal first Colombian to win the title
Egan Bernal is a first Colombian who wins the title of Tour de France championship.
Tradition dictates that the race leader is not challenged on Sunday’s largely processional final stage to Paris.
Bernal, 22, will become the youngest Tour winner for 110 years, with Ineos team-mate Geraint Thomas in second.
Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk moved up to third as Julian Alaphilippe faded on an Alpine stage won by Vincenzo Nibali.
Italian Nibali, winner of the Tour de France in 2014, was in the day’s break and attacked again on the climb to the finish at Val Thorens, winning by 10 seconds from Spain’s Alejandro Valverde.
Bernal and Thomas, who won last year’s Tour, finished stage 20 a few seconds later, crossing the line arm-in-arm, with huge grins on their faces. They came into the race as joint leaders for Ineos and, providing they both reach the finish in Paris on Sunday, will end it first and second in the general classification.
