Rohan Dennis: Covid-19 can Suck my Ass and so can Quarantine!

Rohan Dennis comes under criticism after posting a photo online in which he appears to flout Spain’s coronavirus lock-down laws

The time trial world champion suspended his Twitter and Instagram profiles after posting a picture of himself sitting in a car with the location marked as his Girona base.

The caption read: “Day 34 – cracked and left the house. #covid19 can suck my ass and so can #quarantine.”

One fan suggested he shouldn’t have posted the photo, but Dennis didn’t hold back.

“Or I could show the reality of how shit the situation is and not be one of your beloved drones who show their ‘perfect world’ as an elite athlete. Which one would you like – real or fake?”

Afterwards, Dennis looked to have suspended hiss social media accounts, after he received a flurry of replies to his updates.

The virus has killed more than 20,000 people and infected almost 195,000 in Spain, with lockdown measures among the strictest in the world.

Dennis, who had switched from Bahrain Merida to Team Ineos after suddenly withdrawing midway through last year’s Tour de France, had recently won a virtual Zwift race run by his new team.

Team Ineos have been active supporters of the COVID-19 response, delivering hand sanitiser branded with their logo, while Welsh star Geraint Thomas has raised more than $375,000 for NHS (National Health Service) charities by doing three 12-hour Zwift rides.
