The Tour illuminates the Vuelta

The sporting success of the Tour, without notable incidents, has occurred during a period in which France has led the contagions in Europe.

The Pandemic Tour met the challenge. When on August 29 he started in Nice, on a red alert for the virus, doubts flooded the cycling caravan. Would the most important race in the world be able to arrive 23 days later in Paris? You are right. Not only has he finished, but he has done it without incident and without any influence on the sporting result. Two positives on the same team were equivalent to an expulsion that never occurred. The data that have been announced as official only registered four infected in four different squads on the first day of rest. In the second, things were better, with no contagion in 785 PCR tests. The bubble created around sports groups has worked, that is evident. Only outside of them has there been some squeaky event, such as the Tour director himself, Christian Prudhomme, leaving the race for a positive for a single week, while the COVID Cell withdrew the accreditation and urged an isolation of twice the time to journalists in close contact with an affected person. Contradictory.

The sporting success of the Tour, without notable incidents, has occurred during a period in which France has led the contagions in Europe, just ahead of Spain. They are the two countries most punished at the moment, which shows that the peloton, in its bubble and with discipline, can roll down the route even in alert situations. A month later, on October 20, the Vuelta will begin. Around your organization there is logical concern about the second wave, but the intensive work continues. Among those tasks is the arduous task of coordinating with nine autonomous communities, which are the ones with Health powers. Despite this differentiating element, the good performance of the Tour should serve as an example. And leave the rest of the races free track.
