Cycling team Jumbo-Visma has immediately ended the training camp in Alicante, Spain. The reason is a corona case within the formation. It is not known who it is.
The positively tested rider or staff member and those who have been in close contact with him remain in quarantine, the rest have already left a day after arrival or continue to train individually in Spain.
“The doomsday scenario has come true,” says performance manager Mathieu Heijboer. “But it is a scenario that we had already taken into account.” Jumbo-Visma had therefore already limited mutual contacts to a minimum.
Tom Dumoulin was already not present at the training camp. He stayed at home because he had been in close contact with an infected person last week.
