The Colombian cyclist was characterized by using his social networks to express political opinions during the electoral period. Through his multiple comments, he made his disgust with Gustavo Petro clear.

One day before the elections, Bernal wrote on his Twitter account that “Petro’s campaign showed how far they are capable of going with “anything goes”, trampling and discrediting anyone who is not with them, and worst of all even their own allies“In that same message, he wished Rodolfo Hernández success for the voting day.

Now, with Petro’s victory at the polls, with 11.2 million votes according to the pre-count, against Hernández, who obtained 10.5 million, the cyclist referred to the matter saying that he respected each person who voted for the candidate of the Historical Pact.

Full respect for every person who voted for him (this is democracy). He will have a great responsibility with each one of them and the +10 million that we were against. I hope it proves us wrong“, is read in his trill.

In another comment, Bernal says he has “no grudge against anyone” and who understands the social despair that each media message would cause.

The rider ends like this: “I also want to see my country great and although in politics we think differently with some. I work every day to make it even bigger“.
