The French UCI president David Lappartient has the wielerformatie of Sky in the Tour de France called the French fans no longer offend. David Brailsford, teamchef of team of four-time tour winner Chris Froome and geletruidrager Geraint Thomas, laid the blame for the negative behavior compared to the toppers at the hometown audience. “That boo and spit is a typical French thing,” said Brailsford Monday on the day of rest.
Frenchman David Lappartient, on behalf of the international wielerfederatie to visit in the Tour, feels that a wrong signal. “In the first place, not all French supporters along the way, but people from all over the world. I think it is not healthy is one nationality is to blame. In addition, throws Brailsford oil on the fire, just now everyone is trying somewhat to comfort her.”
Froome was shortly before the Tour acquitted of excessive use of the astmamiddel salbutamol.
