Trek-Segafredo have been given the green light to ride Wednesday’s Dwars door Vlaanderen after a series of final pre-race COVID-19 tests came back negative.

However, former world champion Mads Pedersen and Alex Kirsch will not be part of Trek-Segafredo’s line-up. They were deemed to be a close contact with one of Trek-Segafredo’s COVID-19 cases and will have to stay in isolation until Saturday. They can train outdoors alone but will have to test negative in final testing to be allowed to ride Sunday’s Tour of Flanders.
