Luke Rowe is the latest WorldTour pro to be diagnosed with COVID-19.
Other Ineos Grenadiers riders to test positive for COVID-19 during the 2020 season include Filippo Ganna, who was diagnosed in November.
The Welsh rider has been part of the team since 2012, and recently signed a contract that will keep him in Ineos Grenadiers colors through 2023. The 30-year-old raced 51 race days in 2020, including the Tour de France, where he rode to seventh in stage 19 after team captain Egan Bernal pulled out.
The news comes a day after vandals spray-painted Ineos Grenadiers vehicles with graffiti in Belgium. Officials said four people have been arrested in the incident that saw team vehicles spray-painted with, “Ineos will fail.”
Ineos Grenadiers riders are expected to gather for the team’s first training in 2021 in January.
