Following positive COVID test results, BORA - hansgrohe changes line-up for Paris-Bourges and Paris-Tours
After displaying slight symptoms of a cold, Pascal Ackermann and Michael Schwarzmann had a PCR test carried out on short notice ahead of their trip to France, which returned a positive result. A second test confirmed the positive result for both riders. Ackermann and Schwarzmann therefore did not commence their trip and are now at home, following the guidelines of the relevant health authorities.
Maciej Bodnar will take part in the two races as a substitute, but the team will only start with six riders.
