Belgian cycling team Deceuninck-Quick-Step announced on Tuesday that they had scheduled their first training camp since the coronavirus lockdown for mid-June in the Flemish Ardennes.
Quick-Step, who boast French star Julian Alaphilippe and highly-rated Belgian youngster Remco Evenepoel among their ranks, will stay at a villa instead of a hotel to "limit contact with people from outside the team".
They said that medical staff are working on a way to ensure the riders can be tested for COVID-19 on arrival.
The World Tour season, suspended since mid-March, is scheduled to resume in early August, with the Tour de France set to start on August 29, despite the French government's ban on professional sport until September.
