The race director now threatens to punish Jumbo-Visma for that action. The Italian also targets EF Education First. That team sent out an open letter during the Giro, containing the proposal to end the round early because of the various corona infections.
“After that letter from Education First, there was sudden concern. But I was determined to make it to Milan ”, says Vegni in an interview with The Gazzetta dello Sport.
“If the World Tour teams are allowed to break the rules just like that and fail to comply with their duty, then I will also decide who I will and will not invite next year. I had already said that this was going to get a tail end. This is a matter for the UCI licensing committee. I want penalties for EF Education First and Jumbo-Visma. ”
Vegni cannot determine which teams may participate in the Giro. According to the regulations, all WorldTour teams are assured of participation. If Jumbo-Visma has indeed stepped off course for safety and health reasons, the race director can scream very loudly, but he has no leg to stand on.
Mauro Vegni discusses with Adam Hansen.
In the interview, Vegni also briefly referred to the rider’s strike prior to the 19th stage, when the peloton refused to complete a flat ride of no less than 260 kilometers in the rain.
“If my employees didn’t do what I pay them for, I would be angry. I’m still trying to understand. The fact that they pushed forward a rider who was on the last race of his career (Adam Hansen, red.), says enough. Rosette wearer Wilco Kelderman said on television that he supported the protest, but did apologize to me in Sestriere. ”
However, 39-year-old Hansen spoke to the organization on behalf of the cyclists’ union CPA. „The sixteen teams have jointly asked to shorten the stage due to the many early mornings and the long transfers. Given the fatigue and the attack on our immune system, the riders thought it was unnecessary to ride a stage of 260 kilometers, which starts in the rain, with a pandemic going on. ”
