Odd Season: GVA Open To Pay Cut, Says Teams Need Broadcast Revenue Post-COVID-19

On a Zoom call with cycling media, Olympic champion Greg van Avermaet talks about what life is like under coronavirus restrictions in Belgium. He's doing endurance training of around 100km a day with a single training partner, Gijs Van Hoecke. ("We made a pact," says Van Avermaet.)
As businesses suffer, and the CCC Team looks at reducing rider pay to assist its title sponsor, Van Avermaet says he believes a share of broadcast revenue will provide teams with greater stability in a post-coronavirus world.
