Rigoberto Uran (EF Pro Cycling) has resumed training outside after spending more than nine weeks in lockdown due to the COVID-19 coronavirus restrictions in Colombia. His main target of the revised late-season calendar will be the Tour de France, according to a report in Marca.

"It was very nice, really, to get back on the road. Beautiful, but also a little strange. You see very few cars and cyclists," Uran told the Spanish newspaper, emphasising that being able to ride outside felt like a blessing, was motivating and it gave him some much needed happiness during such unprecedented times.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
