UCI relaxes COVID-19 exclusion rules at Tour de France

first_img WATCH US LIVE Last Updated: 28th August, 2020 22:34 IST UCI Relaxes COVID-19 Exclusion Rules At Tour De France Cycling’s governing body has relaxed the Tour de France’s COVID-19 exclusion rules on the eve of the race’s opening stage following complaints from teams that feared their riders would be unfairly excluded from the race. Written By SUBSCRIBE TO US Cycling’s governing body has relaxed the Tour de France’s COVID-19 exclusion rules on the eve of the race’s opening stage following complaints from teams that feared their riders would be unfairly excluded from the race.After meeting with team officials, the UCI said Friday that a team won’t be automatically sent home if two of its riders test positive for the virus within a period of seven days as was initially planned. According to the revised protocol, it will be up to Tour de France organizers to decide whether to throw a whole team out of the race.Tour director Christian Prudhomme said later Friday he was still waiting for French authorities to decide whether to allow organizers any leeway in making such decisions.“In the case of two or more riders from the same team testing positive for COVID-19 within a period of seven days at a Grand Tour, the UCI will give the event organiser authorisation to announce the withdrawal of the team for health reasons,” the UCI said.Initially, the Tour’s COVID-19 protocol stipulated that teams would be expelled if two or more of their riders or staff tested positive for the virus within a seven-day span. Under the new rules that will also be implemented at the Spanish Vuelta and Giro d’Italia, staff members will not be counted.Speaking with reporters, UCI president David Lappartient said the new protocol is different from the one devised by Tour organizers ASO, but stringent enough.“We also told the teams that they have to be strict,” he said. “We want the Tour de France to start, but we want the Tour de France to finish. That’s the goal for all of us.”Four staff members of the Belgian team Lotto-Soudal were sent home Thursday after “non-negative” coronavirus tests. The team said a mechanic and a member of the rider support staff returned “one positive and one suspicious result.” Both left the race bubble along with their roommates.The UCI said the latest revisions “come from the desire to optimise the interpretation of a positive viral diagnostic test and confirm that it indeed corresponds with a recent coronavirus infection.”In case of a positive result, the UCI also urged organizers to “do everything possible” to perform a retest and a blood analysis before the next stage.“These complementary examinations will be a very useful additional element in the global medical assessment, which will make it possible to evaluate the contagious character or not of the rider (or team member),” it said.The measure is aimed at avoiding false positive tests that could rule out healthy riders.The UCI said team members who test positive during the race will be isolated and will have to leave if a second test cannot be performed in time.Tour organizers have set up a mobile coronavirus lab that can produce results in two hours and handle 50 tests a day on race days. However, Prudhomme said he can’t guarantee a rider will be given the additional tests before he is removed from the race following an initial positive result.German team Bora-Hansgrohe was among those who expressed concern after one if its riders first tested positive and then tested negative Tuesday, prompting the withdrawal of its entire squad from the one-day Bretagne Classic race.“The adjustments made today to the UCI protocol have enabled us to find the right balance between the legitimate concerns of teams faced with the risk of exclusion and the vital preservation of the peloton’s health,” Lappartient said.

Maybe he didn’t expect to find such a large squad. “He had a very tight squad at Napoli. But he doesn’t have big problems. I think there is mutual trust. “It takes time and he’ll need some months to change the working method and mentality, but everyone wants to change. Fiorentina played an excellent game against Juventus, so the Bianconeri went under a little in difficulty.” last_img read more

23 days agoTeam of the Week: Leicester dominate; Jorginho fills Chelsea void; Ederson excellent

first_imgTeam of the Week: Leicester dominate; Jorginho fills Chelsea void; Ederson excellentby Eli Rubenstein Sturgess23 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveIt was another weekend of drama in the Premier League, with Dean Henderson’s rare blunder gifting Liverpool a 16th consecutive win.Manchester City once again took all 3 points, Leicester destroyed Newcastle to concretise themselves in the top 3 and Manchester United and Arsenal battled it out for a tough draw.We here at tribalfootball look at the top performers from Matchday 7 in the Tribal Football Team Of The Week.GOALKEEPER – EDERSON(Manchester City)The City goalkeeper was back to his best against Everton, proving why he belongs in the star-studded Guardiola line-up.In total the Brazilian made 6 saves, 2 of them terrific reflex stops to deny the imposing Yerry Mina from corners.CENTRE-BACK – VIRGIL VAN DIJK (Liverpool)The world’s best centre-back was again crucial for his side, keeping another clean sheet in the club’s 16th consecutive win.Keeping the ominous home side to just 2 shots on target, Van Dijk was huge in defence winning 11 aerial duels and 8 clearances.The Dutchman was also key to the sides offensive play making 12 (out of 16) accurate long balls.LEFT-BACK – JAN VERTONGHEN (Tottenham Hotspur)With a depleted 10-men-Spurs backed into a corner against an oncoming Southampton side, the Dutchman was instrumental in helping his side cling onto a 2-1 victory.Vertonghen won 4 aerial duels, made 3 interceptions and made 5 clearances in a strong performance.RIGHT-BACK – RICARDO PEREIRA (Leicester City)Twice in two weeks the Portuguese full-back finds himself in the team of the week, proving why he was made Leicester’s player of the season last time out.Bubbly as always bursting down the right flank, Ricardo was a constant threat to the Newcastle defence and was in everything for Leicester completing over 100 passes.However it was his 40 yard blistering run and left-foot long-shot goal that put the Foxes 1-0 up that stole the headlines.DEFENSIVE-MIDFIELD – WILFRED NDIDI (Leicester City)The Nigerian was at his supreme defensive best, making tackles and breaking down Newcastle offensive plays for fun.In total Ndidi made 9 tackles and 5 interceptions, furthering his reputation as the leagues top tackler, as well as scoring Leicester 5th goal with a lovely bit of control in 2nd half injury time.CENTRE-MIDFIELD – LUKA MILOVOJEVIC (Crystal Palace)Crystal Palace’s cool, calm and collected captain was key in the Eagles 2-0 win over Norwich.The Serbian midfielder was defensively solid making 6 tackles, and made his impact on the scoresheet, typically converting from the penalty spot.CENTRE-MIDFIELD – JORGINHO (Chelsea)With the repeat absence of N’Golo Kante, the Italian playmaker took control in the centre of Chelsea’s midfield, pulling the strings in the blues 2-0 win over Brighton.Completing 69 passes at an accuracy of 89.9%, Jorginho made 3 key passes and netted the first goal of the game, dispatching one of his trademark penalties.With his defensive duties on display as well, he made 2 tackles, 4 interceptions and 2 clearances in an all-round top performance.LEFT-MIDFIELD – JOHN MCGINN (Aston Villa)The sprightly Scotsman has been consistently one of the top performers for the Villians in the return to the top flight of English Football. In Villa’s tough 2-2 draw with Burnley, it was again McGinn who provided much needed attacking influence to his side.McGinn registered 4 dribbles and 4 shots on goal in total, and thought he had opened the scoring before his first goal was chalked off by VAR.McGinn however would not leave the match without his name on the scoresheet, smashing home a volley in the 79th minute. It was his third goal for the season.RIGHT-MIDFIELD – MATT DOHERTY (Wolverhampton Wanderers)In a much needed win for Wolves over struggling Watford, it was the unlikely source of stalwart Matt Doherty that produced a best on ground performance.The Irishman scored the first goal of the game, tapping home Neto’s delightful cross. He was also very involved in the second, charging down the wing and crossing the ball onto the head of Gibbs-White, whose shot deflected off Janmaat to make it 2-0.RIGHT-FORWARD- RIYAD MAHREZIt was another scintillating performance from the Algerian showboater, whose talent on the ball once again shone through in City’s 1-3 win over Everton.Mahrez appeared to be involved in all of City’s attacking play, fooling defenders for fun. In total, he had 5 shots on target (from 5 shots) and made 5 key passes all while operating at a pass accuracy of 91.4%Mahrez played the pass to De Bruyne in the first goal, scored a beautiful free kick for City’s 2nd, and it was his trickery that led to the 3rd.LEFT-FORWARD – JOSHUA KINGThe Norwegian is putting together another impressive start for the Cherries, with a man of the match performance in Bournemouth’s exciting 2-2 encounter with West Ham.King scored the first goal of the match, cleverly dispatching the loose end on Rico’s cross, making it 50 goals in English Leagues for the attacker.At the start of the 2nd half, King cleverly used the outside of his foot to play through Wilson who made the score 2-1.MANAGER OF THE WEEK – BRENDAN ROGERS (Leicester City)Brendan Roger’s Leicester side has been highly praised, with many pundits predicting their imminent rise into the top 6 after gutsy performances against some of the League’s top sides.However, their rise to the top has been halted by their inability to consistently beat the Premier League’s lesser teams, unlike that of the top sides.This assumption was thoroughly dismantled as Leicester ruthlessly tore apart the struggling Newcastle side.After a positive start with the scores at 1-0, the foxes stepped it up a level when the Magpies went down to 10 men, putting a further four goals past Dubravka in goals.It’s a performance like this that will get the top 6 teams shaking in their boots.GOAL OF THE WEEK – RICARDO PEREIRA (Leicester City)Is there a better right-back in the Premier League than Ricardo Pereira right now? pic.twitter.com/uDEZLVM3CR— Goal (@goal) September 30, 2019 TagsOpinionTeam of the WeekAbout the authorEli Rubenstein SturgessShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Two More NCL Ships Scrubbing SOx Emissions

first_imgzoom Miami-based cruise company Norwegian Cruise Line has completed the retrofitting of a new exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS) on two of its ships, Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Jade.The new systems are aimed at significantly reducing air emissions and, subsequently, the ships’ environmental footprints, in conjunction with the line’s Sail & Sustain environmental program.The ships’ new lightweight in-line scrubbers are a hybrid technology developed by Yara Marine Technologies that are able to operate in open loop, closed loop and closed loop with bleed off mode. In each ship, five scrubbers were installed, one per engine, covering the whole propulsion system.Collectively, they are capable of reducing the emission of sulfur to air up to 99 percent and also reduce 85 percent particulate emission to the air. Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Sun’s new technology will reduce the equivalent of around 3,000 tons of sulfur oxide (SOx) gas in the years to come, NCL informed.The new system works by “scrubbing away” the sulfur oxide and particulate matter before the emissions leave the stack to decrease the amount that is released into the air, resulting in a clean white plume of steam.In 2014, Norwegian Cruise Line revealed its plans to retrofit six vessels with the techonology, and has now exceeded its initial aim with eight ships in total as Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Sun join Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Joy and Pride of America and the line’s newest ship sailing in June 2018, Norwegian Bliss.Norwegian led the industry by being the first cruise line to install scrubbers with a state-of-the-art water membranes filtration unit in 2016. This water cleaning system uses Ultrafiltration technology to clean the recirculated water during the closed loop operation down to clear water. The by-product is collected and removed in drums.NCL said that it is on track to meet its MARPOL Annex VI compliance goal of reducing its global sulfur cap from 3.5 percent to 0.5 percent by 2020.last_img read more
