Worries that riders who travelled from the Sibiu Cycling Tour in Romania to Italy for the upcoming races would be forced to quarantine appear to be unfounded. Bardiani-CSF Faizanè say their riders returned to Italy and will be able to race in this weekend's Strade Bianche.

On Friday, Italy's Minister of Health Roberto Speranza said, "I've just signed an ordinance ordering quarantine for those who have been in Romania and Bulgaria for the last 14 days", sparking concerns that riders who were at the Sibiu Tour would miss all of the Italian events through Milan-San Remo on August 8.
