Henao returns to compete after catching the coronavirus in Spain

According to the VeloNews portal, the Colombian cyclist will return to compete in Plouay after several weeks off after catching coronavirus on his return to Spain.


The nightmare ends for Sergio Henao, who almost six months later will put on a race number again. As confirmed by the UAE Emirates team to the VeloNews portal, the Colombian cyclist will compete in the Bretagne Classic - Ouest France in Plouay after he has overcome the coronavirus in recent weeks.

Henao was one of the cyclists who flew to Europe from Colombia on the flight that brought some Colombian sports figures to the continent to resume their competition calendar. They all tested negative before getting on the plane. However, Henao tested positive for coronavirus during his stay in Spain while training near his residence in Pamplona. Finally, the cyclist has given two negative tests in the tests that have been carried out before a UCI World Tour race and this Tuesday he will be able to start in Plouay.

Henao has been the third UAE Emirates rider to have contracted the virus since the start of the pandemic, as two other riders from the team, Colombian Fernando Gaviria and Argentine Maxi Richeze, were infected during the UAE Tour dispute last month February. After overcoming the virus, Henao only thinks about competing in Plouay before continuing his season in Italy, where he is expected to play Tirreno Adriatico (7-13 September) and Giro d'Italia (3-25 October) .
