A virus threatens the team of leader Remco Evenepoel, who has already lost a man: “We are worried”
A virus has threatened Remco Evenepoel’s Soudal team. “We are worried, but we can’t do much,” acknowledged Klass Lodewyck, director of the Belgians, in ‘Sporza’.
“We hope that today everything will be better, but you can never be sure,” he said of the problems of Andrea Bagioli and Louis Vervaeke. The first finally had to abandon in this sixth stage.
In addition, Remco recalled that other cyclists (like Vingegaard) are stopping to relieve themselves in the middle of the race during these last stages: “It’s annoying, but we are not alone. ” Vine, one of Ayuso’s best teammates in the UAE, had to abandon due to a fall. Time will tell how a virus evolves that could cause problems for various riders and teams.
