This weekend’s Troféu Joaquim Agostinho stage race in Portugal has been postponed until September following a case of COVID-19 in the race organisation. The UCI 2.2 event is a traditional curtain raiser for the Volta a Portugal, which had already been postponed after host towns expressed reservations about welcoming race amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Mindful of the commitment and effort made to put the event on the road, the organisation of the Grande Prémio Internacional de Ciclismo de Torres Vedras – Troféu Joaquim Agostinho announces that it has been hit with a case of COVID-19, which led to a period of quarantine for several members,” read a statement from the race organisation on Tuesday.
