Dave Brailsford has made it clear he would pull Team Ineos out of the rescheduled 2020 Tour de France if he felt that the race’s precautions against coronavirus were not working in a "measured, intelligent and responsible way."

Brailsford and his staff have been busy helping Ineos deliver a million bottles of hand sanitizer produced in Britain, France and Germany since stopping racing in early March and mourning the sudden death of lead directeur sportif Nicolas Portal.

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.
