Astana cycling team withdraws from Paris-Nice

The Kazakh team Astana announced Thursday, March 5, 2020 to withdraw from competitions until March 20 and thus renounce Paris-Nice and the next Italian races, due to the epidemic of coronavirus. After Mitchelton, on the sidelines until March 21, and Ineos, bereaved by the death of its sports director Nicolas Portal, Astana is the third team to give up the “Course au soleil” which begins on Sunday in the Yvelines region Parisian. “We still have a long season ahead of us with many other important races. It is not an easy decision, but we have to protect the cycling family as well as our own families at home, “said Kazakh team director Alexander Vinokurov. Astana’s package covers precisely three events, two in Italy (Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico) and one in France (Paris-Nice).
