Cycling: Giro leaves Androni at home
2.51 p.m.: The Giro d’Italia organization announced the wildcards for the race. Somewhat contrary to expectations, Androni Giocattoli – Sidermec has no place.
This selection is absolutely amazing, as the team took on the final version of “The Stage” with Simon Beloud. The Swiss was eventually honored in Milan as the driver with the most kilometers per journey. The previous year, the team won a stage with Fausto Masnada.
Wildcards go to Eolo-Kometa, Bardiani-CSF, and Vini Zabu. The last two were also there last year, but the choice of Eolo-Kometa was even more impressive. The squad has only entered the pro-Intercontinental competition since this year. The fact that Ivan Baso and Alberto Contador are the driving force behind the team will have something to do with this. Both riders won Giro more than once.
Alpecin-Fenix will also participate in Giro. Matteo van der Bohl’s team won the European Tour last year.

Football: Atletico Madrid and Chelsea have to move
12.10 pm: Atletico Madrid must move to Bucharest to play the second leg against Chelsea in the Eighth Champions League Finals. Due to Corona restrictions, the English are not welcome in Spain, as the match was supposed to take place on February 23.
