Following positive Covid test results, the following teams will not line up for the start of stage six: Alpecin-Fenix, Bahrain-Victorius and UAE Team Emirates. In addition, yesterday’s stage winner and new wearer of the Yellow Jersey, Aleksandr Vlasos (BORA-hansgrohe), will not start. This means that 18 teams are still in the race.
The representatives of the UCI, the teams, the riders and the Tour management jointly assessed the health situation this morning and decided to continue the race. All those involved are called upon to consistently adhere to the current corona protection concept of the Tour de Suisse. Those responsible are monitoring further developments and will assess the situation together again on Saturday morning.
