Two former Zaaf Cycling Team riders have been prevented from racing at La Vuelta Femenina, according to reports from journalist Charles Marsault at the cycling website Velo-Club on Saturday, just two days before the start of the Women’s WorldTour event held from May 1-7 in Spain.

New Zealand’s Michaela Drummond, who left the Zaaf Cycling Team on April 17 and signed a contract on April 28 to race with Spanish team Farto-BTC, confirmed that she will not be at the start of the seven-day race. She wrote in a post to her social media account that the Spanish Cycling Federation has not permitted her registration to compete with her new team in the event.
