Second Sunday of the Tourangelle Wheel, behind Arnaud Démare, Nacer Bouhanni is angry. The French sprinter is up against the insults to which he may have been the subject for a week, and a stormy finish at Cholet-Pays de Loire.
Bouhanni had crushed against the barriers the young rider of the Groupama-FDJ, Jake Stewart, who had miraculously avoided the fall but who all the same broke his hand in the impact against a guardrail. ” Clearly, you don’t have a brain ”, had railed against the British against the French, downgraded for this maneuver. The next day, Bouhanni had apologized.
The rider of the Arkéa-Samsic team is the subject of an investigation by the UCI, which could suspend him. But that in no way justifies the insults that the runner may have received via social networks. On Instagram, the Vosges has shared a few hostile messages, some of which are racist. The former champion of France has announced that he will file a complaint.
