Good to see Josip Rumac entered. Our first GT rider in a while.   I saw him couple of times, riding around my hometown.

Indeed, races should only be held in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, all almost covid free thanks to their self-disciplines. Let's just scrap races in this mafia driven country , I'm boycotting them

There is truly no challenge to Demare's reign as king of the sprints here, wow.

It's not king of the points at Giro?

A whole bunch of motorbike riders around the Giro has tested positive. Sidenote: a lot of these stay in the same hotels as teams and local guests, with barely any COVID-restrictions in place around things like buffets.

 

 

Talking about motorbike riders, the total moron/amateur who hit Viviani while for some inexplicable reason driving in the middle of the peloton has rightfully been kicked out of the race.

Giro-E = giro d'Italia for e-bikes - this thing https://www.giroe.it/en/home/

 

From the same article you posted:

 

"la direzione della corsa rosa ha precisato a tuttobiciweb che nessun poliziotto al seguito del Giro dei professionisti è stato trovato positivo" = no positives among the policemen following the Giro d'Italia for now.

 

"È bene anche sottolineare con chiarezza, che due sono le squadre della polstrada al seguito delle corse, e sono entrambe ben distinte" = the police squads for Giro d'Italia and Giro-E are separated. 

 

PS: that twitter account :facepalm:"article mentions that policemen have been in the same hotel as riders" and links to an article that does not mention it at all.

Yeah that last part is a bit unfortunate. It's no secret though, riders have mentioned exactly that (policemen, motorcyclists, even local guests in the same hotels and buffets). It's a shame there isn't much of a 'bubble' and if there is, organizers don't seem to care about keeping it.

 

On the other side, I really don't understand teams using hotel food at all in these times. Most of them are fairly big professional teams, surely they can cook some pasta and stuff in their own trucks?

Apparently one team (not said which) asked the organizers to finish the Giro on Sunday, with a hilly stage, sprint stage, mountain stage and time trial to finish it off. They said no, for now, although I'm sure everyone is rather curious to see how the second rest day/mass testing day will go.
