Favorite Fox misses Paris-Roubaix due to positive corona test: ‘The world is collapsing’

Marianne Vos is not cycling for Paris-Roubaix today. The Jumbo-Visma runner tested positive for corona a few hours before the start of the race on Saturday morning and is unable to race.

Vos skipped the Amstel Gold Race last weekend because he didn’t feel very fit. He found the right feel for Paris-Roubaix, went to a training camp in Spain and came back ready to race.

“The World Collapses”

“The disappointment is huge”, Vos said in a press release from Team Jumbo. “I was looking forward to this match. When I came back positive this morning, the world fell on me.”

Jumbo-Visma says it always adheres to the corona protocols during the course. Riders and personnel should be tested daily. Fox has nothing to complain about. “I support the team policy. You should not take any risks with regard to your health. I’m going home, resting and hopefully I’ll continue to feel good.”

Last year Vos took second place at the Roubaix cycling track. She became one of the favorites to win the women’s race for the second time this year.

Vos’ road season is not going according to plan so far. He rode two races in March, seventh in the Strade Bianche and second in Gent-Wevelgem, and two weeks ago he finished twentieth in the Tour of Flanders.
