EF Education First has written a letter to the UCI with the proposal to end the Giro prematurely, Eurosport reports. The cycling association has rejected the proposal.
Education First is calling for the Tour of Italy to be stopped after Sunday’s stage. They did this in a letter to organizer RCS, the UCI and the other teams. The North American team fears that many more infections will follow, after a lot of positive corona tests have already been passed. On the first rest day, eleven riders had to leave the race.
Manager Jonathan Vaughters emphasized on Twitter that EF does not want to threaten to leave the course. Above all, he wants the race to be ridden correctly. If the following tests show that no one is infected, the team will continue to drive, it sounds.
EF’s proposal was to perform an extra test before the second rest day and to stop the Giro if new positive cases arise from it. The UCI has reacted negatively to the proposal. The cycling association says it will do everything it can to continue the race in safe conditions. According to the organization, additional tests are not required.
EF also wrote in the letter that it would collectively leave the race itself if a rider of the team tests positive.
