The CCC-Liv team has told Cyclingnews that they are continuing to prepare for a potential re-start of racing season despite news that the owner of the Polish footwear company CCC has been forced to cut costs as the business struggles due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The Polish website Rowery, reported last week that Dariusz Milek, head of CCC, was looking to cut spending as the company’s share prices dropped by 90 per cent compared to 2018, while revenues are down nine per cent year-on-year for the first quarter.
