Italy will make their riders returning from the Sibiu Tour in Romania quarantine for 14 days, ruling dozens out of the season restart in the country next week.

Teams will have likely factored this in when deciding squads, the safest option seeming to be keeping star riders in the same country as much as possible during this precarious return to racing.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
