Giro is also at risk if this continues in the same vein.

Gaviria is apparently infected with the virus and so are a number of UAE Emirates and FDJ riders. Theres so many FDJ riders and staff in quarantine that they cant put a team out for the other world tour races anyway so they've pulled out of racing by default too.

Edit: Ineos withdrawing from all racing until the 28th too.

Half the World tour are out, no way we're getting anymore races.

At least. Remember the first outbreaks were last year and China still doesn't have a handle on it 3 months later.

it's probably fine, the riskiest patients are the elderly and immunocomprimised, so we should just lose Valverde and Thibault Pinot

A course of high power steroids is one of the treatments so Valverde is already prepared

speaking of dropped, looks like no Volta a Catalunya, Brugge-De Panne, E3 or Gent-Wevelgem


at this point I'd be shocked if the Ronde happened, let alone the Giro.

the snooker in gibraltar is on but they don't have enough referees so the players have to replace the balls themselves on some of the tables.
