UAE Team Emirates hope to ride Sunday’s Liège-Bastogne-Liège, indicating that Tadej Pogačar, Marc Hirschi and Brandon McNulty will be on the start line if they all test negative for COVID-19 before the race. 

The team were stopped from riding Wednesday's La Flèche Wallonne after two positive COVID-19 tests earlier in the week, which, according to multiple reports, involved Diego Ulissi and team manager Mauro Gianetti.
