Spectator who caused massive crash at the Tour de France in June is handed a four-month suspended PRISON sentence after a brief trial in Brest
The 31-year-old woman who caused a massive crash at the Tour de France in June has been handed a four-month suspended prison sentence after a brief trial in Brest.
‘I am ashamed,’ the woman said, who has not been named in order to protect her indentity. ‘I am a quiet person. Everything that has happened is the opposite of who I am.’
A lawyer representing the riders’ association (CPA) said they hoped the sentence would serve as a signal of the seriousness of her actions.
‘The public is key to cycling races, it must remain that way, but it must be done with respect for the physical integrity of the riders,’ the lawyer said. ‘This case is representative of what can happen with people who want to take centre-stage themselves with pictures, videos. It has to be done with a minimum of common sense and this was not the case there.’
