Lefevere defends Evenepoel after the Belgian withdrew from the Giro d’Italia with COVID-19

Soudal-QuickStep manager Patrick Lefevre defended Remco Evenepoel’s decision to drop the Giro d’Italia due to COVID-19, saying on Twitter that “it’s not a 9-5 job”.

Lefevere was responding to a comment by Wielerflits journalist Raymond Kerckhoff on the same social media channel about whether riders should abandon if they have no or few symptoms of COVID-19.
