All Tour riders tested positive for COVID, Prudhomme and four crew members

All riders in the Tour de France are free to continue racing on Tuesday, and the corona virus has been removed for all. Four team employees from different teams were tested positive and sent home from the race. Race director Christian Prudhom is also said to have tested positive.

In an official statement, race organizers did not confirm previous media reports, but one rider did not test positive, but one team member said, “Team Copidis, AG2R, La Montiel, Aeneas Grenadiers and Mitchellton-Scott each tested positive.”

The same report states that a “technical service provider tested positive and left the race.”

Luxembourg media RDL reported that Prudhomme will leave the race for seven days and that his vice-president Fran பிரான்ois Lemarchand will take over the race direction duties. Prudhomme shared a car with French Prime Minister Jean Costex over the weekend.

According to a media report, an employee at Desynink-Quickstep was re-tested following an apparent error in the first test on Tuesday morning. The employee then tested negative.

A total of 841 corona virus tests were completed on Sunday and Monday, according to UCI and ASO.

Any rider or crew member who tests positive for the corona virus during the tour will be sent home. Two confirmed positives within a team will see the whole team expelled.
