CCC-Liv will not start today in the Brabantse Pijl. After a positive COVID-19 test within the team, CCC-Liv has decided not to start today in the Brabantse Pijl. The team will take all the necessary measures.
Team doctor Tessa Backhuijs: “All riders and staff members in the team bubble were double tested prior to the Brabantse Pijl. The results from both tests were all negative. We shared this information with the UCI in good time as prescribed by the UCI. In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, however, when the riders and staff were already in the team bubble which was intended to be safe, we were alerted by a test lab that one of the test results turned out to be positive after all. We then took our responsibility on Wednesday morning and decided to keep the entire team out of the race.”
