The Education First Pro Cycling team asked the organization of the Giro d’Italia to suspend the race on the second day of rest because the health bubble was “clearly compromised”, a request that was denied by the International Cycling Union (UCI) .
This proposal came after several positive cases of Covid-19 detected last Tuesday in the Mitchelton-Scott and Jumbo-Visma formations, which were withdrawn from the Tour of Italy. Positive cases were also detected in the Sunweb (Michael Matthews), Ag2 La Mondiale and Ineos Grenadiers teams, the latter two in members of the auxiliary staff.
According to Eurosport, in the letter addressed to the organization, the American team believes that it would be better for the Giro d’Italia and the UCI if the test ended in a systematic and complete way rather than a chaotic withdrawal of team by team.
The letter also suggests that each rider take two tests before the next rest day and stop the race if there are more positive tests.
The UCI calls for “everyone’s cooperation with the common goal of continuing our sport in the safest conditions.”
This type of decision does not depend on the organizer, but on the UCI, which rejected the request of the Education First Pro Cycling team.
Through the voice of its president David Lappartient, the UCI affirms that the objective is “to finish the season and that can be achieved with this spirit of collaboration and unity in professional cycling”.
