Marine Cabirou announced on Instagram yesterday that she has tested positive for COVID-19 but is hoping to return to racing at the World Championships in Leogang.
Cabirou first suspected she had the disease when she found it difficult to recover from the French Championships in Les Menuires
. She took a test the day after the race and received her positive result last week.
Cabirou is now in quarantine and is aiming to recover in time for the World Championships, which is currently scheduled for October 9-11. She will not miss any World Cup racing as all events up until then have already been cancelled.
We wish Marine the best of luck in her recovery and hope to see her back on the bike racing soon.
