RIDERS COMMUNICATION FROM THE TOUR OF ANDALUSIA

from 21/05/21

The riders participating in the “Vuelta a Andalucia” will delay the start of today's stage by a few minutes to protest against the lack of attention that has been given to their safety requests at the race.
The riders protest against the choice of routes, gravel descents and large potholes, which in yesterday's stage put their safety and well-being in serious danger.
This difficult situation is to be added to the long and tiring transfers to which the athletes have been subjected during this race. They understand the organizer's difficulties due to the post-pandemic period but they ask for more attention and respect to be given to this situation, as this is also a requirement by the regulations.
The safety of the athletes must be the priority in the organization of all races, both large and small and they will no longer tolerate serious shortcomings such as those which were encountered yesterday.
This symbolic protest is intended to attract the attention of the organizers and the UCI to this important issue.
