Régis Pinot, the father of Thibaut Pinot, tested positive for the corona virus. The leader of Groupama-FDJ is in good health himself, says his father. “Thibaut is fine for now. I saw him behind the window because I don’t want my kids with me while I’m contagious, ”he says France Bleu.
At the end of last week, Régis Pinot had the first symptoms of the coronavirus. “First pain, then I had to cough and then I got a fever,” he explains. He eventually became a test last Monday, after which the positive result on the virus was reported on Wednesday. “At the moment I mainly have breathing problems.”
As the father of French hope when it comes to round work, Régis also has an opinion about the Tour de France. The organization is investigating the possibility of continuing the round during the crisis. Father Pinot does not think that is possible. Otherwise there are inequalities. There are countries where you are still allowed to cycle and not in other countries, ”he says. “We need to give everyone at least a month to resume the games so that everyone can get back on track. Otherwise it is unfair. ”
