Team Sunweb staff member will be replaced after positive COVID-19 test ahead of Vuelta a España

Vuelta a España

After undergoing the required tests to enter a race bubble, a member of staff on the ground in Spain has returned a positive result for COVID-19 on the minus three PCR test. The member of staff is currently asymptomatic, feels well, and will quarantine and return home. Another staff member will be brought in as a replacement.

Cycling’s protocol to keep the bubble clean includes an extensive range of testing, so that asymptomatic cases are detected at an early stage. This pre-race testing is a direct result of that.
