AG2R LA MONDIALE Pro Cycling Team will not participate in upcoming Italian races
Following the cancellation of Strade Bianche, the general management of the AG2R LA MONDIALE team has decided not to participate in the races organized in Italy (Tirreno-Adriatico (March 11-17), Milan-San Remo (March 21)), for which our team was registered, as a precaution to protect the health of our riders and members of the coaching staff.
VINCENT LAVENU : “I cannot risk the health and integrity of our staff “
“We are closely monitoring the coronavirus crisis, in close collaboration with Dr Eric Bouvat, the team’s head doctor, and we are attentive to the decisions being made by the health authorities. As the team manager, I cannot risk the health and integrity of our staff when the health situation is so unstable in Italy, and many legitimate questions have been raised within the team. Sporting interests should not overshadow prudence and wisdom when it comes to public health. We are very sorry for the organizers of these legendary races and we have informed them this morning of our decision,”VINCENT LAVENU
