There was nothing positive for covid the rest of the Tour day


No cyclist tested positive for covid in the test campaign conducted on the second day of the Tour de France breakreported by the International Cycling Union (UCI) on Monday.

All reviews were negative“, the organization said in a joint statement with the race organizers.

As planned, all peloton members underwent a covid test after the ninth round, which was played this Sunday between Aigle, UCI headquarters in Switzerland, and Châtel, in France.

Despite this good result, the UCI reiterated protection rules to prevent the spread of pandemicsuch as the obligation to wear a mask when the race is over, maintain safety distances and regular hand disinfection.

After the rebound of the pandemic that was registered a few weeks ago, which on the last Trip to Switzerland forced nearly 70 runners to retreat, UCI changed the rules and restricted the control device.

All cyclists pass the test in Copenhagen before the test starts and they must do so in the last two days of the break, the first of them this Monday.

At the same time, all teams set up their own control systems and subjected their cyclists to regular tests, which led to several casualties since the start of the Tour.

Norwegian Vegard Stake Laengen, from the UAE leader’s team, Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, and Frenchmen Geoffrey Bouchard and Guillaume Martin, were forced to leave the peloton, late this Sunday before the ninth period began.

The Cofidis cyclist, who is 14th overall, was very critical of the health protocol that dismissed him and considers him “subject to interpretation”.

Actually just riders who are contagious by team doctorsthe UCI and the organization were not included, which happened to Martin.

But the French runner deemed the regulations had been applied too much and he needed to continue racing.
