Bora-Hansgrohe said it had been given the go-ahead to race Dwars door Vlaanderen with only Matt Walls and two first category contacts remaining in quarantine, while the rest of the riders and staff have been released after testing negative to COVID-19 several times. 

Bora-Hansgrohe were stopped from riding the E3 Saxo Bank Classic last Friday and Sunday's Gent-Wevelgem after Britain’s Walls tested positive and the E3 Saxo Bank Classic COVID-19 doctor deemed that 16 riders and staff were classified as close contact cases therefore were ordered to quarantine. The team questioned the decision but under Belgian national COVID-19 rules, the riders faced a week in strict quarantine, with only training indoors on the rollers permitted.
