Cesare Benedetti (BORA – hansgrohe) should be a fine of 200 Swiss francs to pay because he Wednesday during Nokere Curonian on the bike path was going to drive. The Italian was hoping to slide in the peloton, but did not know that the bike path suddenly ran away from the actual trail. He had, as even imply to be at the back of the peloton again. And that just for the car of the chairman of the jury.
Immediately called the police jury, the Spaniard Pedro Garcia Mozo, the rider in question. “Everyone knows that he is not on the bike or footpath can drive. Therefore, I gave Benedetti immediately a scolding. I could also directly from the set course, but there were still a lot of mitigating circumstances”, said UCI president Garcia Mozo. “First of all meant of action, no danger to the spectators. In addition, he got no advantage from all of this. On the contrary. He had even firmly on the brakes and the very back of the peloton to re-connect it. It cost him 200 Swiss francs. That I could not refrain. Only so will the riders come to realize that it is not able to bicycle or pedestrian paths to drive. We have here with the UCI already been spoken about and signals given to the fact that we no longer tolerate.”
