Bardet offers apology to Chris Froome
The Frenchman showed great sportsmanship today when he publicly apologized to the overall leader for the fans who booed Froome during Sunday’s stage.
“I heard that Froome had been abused at times during yesterday’s stage. I’m sorry about that. He is a champion and he deserves respect. I respect him as a rival and he does not deserve this sort of treatment,“ the Ag2r La Mondiale rider told L’Equipe.
Froome himself didn’t seem to be affected by the loud boos at all, though.
“It’s to be expected if it is basically the home stage of Bardet. So it’s understandable that all the locals here support him. The support has been great so far, and I want to thank the people who’ve come out already,” Froome commented on the incidents.
