The Tour of the Year shows that due to COVID-19 and the social crisis in Colombia, this country was the first place to take off. In principle, the possibility of fully playing in Argentina was also present, but the coronavirus eventually led to Argentina leaving the organization. This is where Brazil came in. In less than ten days of preparation and with many problems, the “Los Lioneles” team showed what they had. The national team “epic” has re-emerged with a formula that seems to have already been recorded in recent good performances on a historical level: a very strong ensemble added to the full credit.
