- Team manager Jonathan Vaughters calls for safety measures
- Adam Yates and Tadej Pogacar to co-lead UAE Emirates team
Jonathan Vaughters, manager of the EF Education Easy Post team that is racing in this year’s Tour de France, is the latest high-profile figure within cycling to advocate the use of safety netting on mountain descents.
The call for increased safety precautions comes less than a fortnight after Gino Mäder, of the Bahrain Victorious team, died after going over the edge during a high-speed mountain descent in June’s Tour of Switzerland.
