Lucinda Brand doesn't expect to be racing anytime soon despite the on-going discussions about rescheduling events and salvaging the second half of the Women's WorldTour calendar. Instead, the Trek-Segafredo team leader is remaining focussed on doing her part to take the necessary health precautions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"My coach said that we don't have races to focus on right now because there is no calendar now," Brand told Cyclingnews. "It's good that we aren't aiming for races because [the coronavirus] is something that first needs to be stabilised around the whole world before we can continue with what we as athletes are doing. Everything has to be under control first before we continue racing."
