Tim Declercq will miss the Tour de France after returning a positive test for COVID-19.
The Belgian was set to form part of Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl’s team for the Tour with the race starting on July 1 in Copenhagen.
The news of the Declercq’s positive case was first reported by Sporza with Patrick Lefevere confirming the news in a series of text messages to VeloNews.
Florian Sénéchal will take Declercq’s place, leaving Mark Cavendish as the next reserve rider on the team’s list.
He will be replaced for the race by French Champion @flosenech.
We wish Tim a speedy recovery!
