Team Cofidis still in lockdown

Our president shares this thoughts regarding the difficult situation of quarantine for 5 days for Team Cofidis in Abu Dhabi

The situation in Abu Dhabi is still not simple while the team is still waiting for the results of the latest tests (knowing that those done this weekend were all negative).

Our president Thierry Vittu, present on the spot made a point of expressing himself and informing you of the difficult situation experienced by the whole team, hoping for a quick and positive outcome.


"In fact, I think that this situation is really not normal. We're being held against our will in a place we didn't choose and for an unknown length of time.

It's this last point which is the most complicated to live with, we always hope that things will get better soon and nothing happens...

It is true that the means of communication (internet, social networks, telephone, PC...) help us to live this situation better, they allow at least to distract ourselves and to reassure our relatives (and incidentally to work)....

It would be nice if the media would take over our situation, just to add pressure where necessary.

But hey, morale remains high, this story will end well one day!

The doorbell just rang at my door, it must be the breakfast left at the foot of the door, that's how they bring us our meals.

When we meet someone from the hotel in the corridor, he runs away...that brings me another comparison, we are treated like plague victims; our rooms have not been made since we arrived 5 days ago, we have to go in front of the elevator, there is a cart and we help ourselves with sheets, soaps, towels.....

That's the situation, some live it well, for others it's more complicated..."
