The Bora-Hansgrohe cycling team was excluded from the Belgian E3 Saxo Bank Classic on Friday after one of its riders returned a positive Covid-19 test.
In a statement the German team said that British rider Matthew Walls had tested positive.
"After Walls' positive test result was received and confirmed by a second test, several PCR tests were carried out on all other team members yesterday, all of which were negative," the statement said.
