The Colombian Cycling Federation has announced that 111 professional riders can return to training in the country's roads under certain conditions.

Although some riders -particularly of the WorldTour- received earlier in the month special permission to start training outside after the country was put in quarantine due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Colombian government now extends it to the riders belonging to Pro Continental and Continental teams, men's and women's. In total 111 cyclists will be able to hit the roads and resume training for the continuation of the calendar.

The Interior and Sports ministers agreed with the Colombian Cycling Federation to a series of measures that will guarantee that everybody keeps safe and healthy during this exceptional times. And they affirmed that they will continue working on these measures to include U-23 and other federated riders.

To be able to train outside, the riders will have to go through a medical test by their teams that will assure that them -and their assistants- are healthy, and they will have to be constantly monitored. The cyclists and their assistants must also undergo a fast Covid-19 test and repeat it every three weeks or at the latest on the last Friday of every month.

The list of riders allowed to train outside includes four of Ineos, four of Astana Pro Team, one cyclist of Bahrain-McLaren, one of Deceuninck-Quick-Step, three of EF Pro Cycling, three of Movistar, five of UAE Team Emirates, three of Arkea-Samsic and three of Androni-Giocatolli, among others. Women riders from Movistar, Astana, Illuminate, Tibco Silicon Valley and VIB-Natural Greatness are also allowed to return to outside training.
