Ian Garrison has been stopped from boarding a flight from the USA to Europe for Deceuninck-QuickStep's key training camp under the European Union's stricter COVID-19 travel recommendations.

The American WorldTour neo-pro was trying to fly from Atlanta to Amsterdam to eventually join his teammates at a training camp at Passo San Pellegrino in the Italian Dolomites but will now have to return to his family home in Atlanta and hope he can fly to Europe before racing resumes in late July and early August.

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.
