Mandatory mask on the Tour

It is the fourth Tour de France since the pandemic and the mask is still present in cycling, one of the last sports, and almost of life in general, in which the instrument is indispensable. This was stipulated by ASO, the race organizing company, which studied the protocol until the last minute and decided after the abundant cases of COVID in the Giro, including that of Evenepoel, a leader who ended up abandoning. In the case of the Tour, the mask must always be on when a person is in contact with the runner.

If one of them tests positive, they do not necessarily have to leave the race. He will decide it together with his team doctor, the UCI doctor and the Tour’s COVID coordinator. “The cases are isolated thanks to the very high percentage of vaccination among runners and team staff. And those infected have increasingly mild symptoms. In the times before the Tour, the incidence in France is very low ”, They say from ASO, that they brand these measures as “preventive”. Precisely, Movistar is one of the teams that wears the mask the most these days, like yesterday at the presentation in Bilbao.
