Alé BTC Ljubljana will not race the Gent-Wevelgem tomorrow after positive Covid-19 test result
Alé BTC Ljubljana will not participate in the female Gent-Wevelgem tomorrow after a Coronavirus positive test finding within the team.
Dr. Claudio Sprenger, Team Doctor, explained: “Riders and staff in the team bubble underwent a double test before the Gent-Wevelgem and, although the team complied with all the protocols and the expected safety bubble, the laboratory that carried out the tests today informed us of the presence of positivity. For this reason, we immediately implemented the protocol dictated by the Union Cycliste Internationale and, also according to the laws in force in Belgium, the whole team has entered into quarantine. In agreement with the technical staff, we have decided not to take part in the race scheduled for tomorrow in Belgium”.
