Froome peed off
BEING doused in liquids by roadside fans goes with the terrain of being a Tour de France rider. But this spectator was yelling “doper!” at Chris Froome and the liquid couldn’t have been more unwelcome.
“No mistake, it was urine,” the race leader said.
While Stage 14 signalled a double celebration for British cycling, with Froome extending his lead and fellow Briton Stephen Cummings getting a first win for South African team MTN- Qhubeka on Nelson Mandela Day, the unpleasant assault dampened the leader’s mood. Froome said it was “unacceptable on so many levels”.
