By Martin Mrazek

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it! So, what did you miss?

Christophe Bassons’ car chase

A 43-year-old French rider found to have been using a hidden motor in a race near the city of Périgueux actually attempted to evade officials wanting to question him. The man identified as Cyril had a puncture with four laps of the race remaining, and when he noticed he was being watched, he promptly returned to his car and drove off.

Former pro Christophe Bassons jumped in his own car and went on pursuit. He luckily managed to get the man to stop and checked his bike.

“I asked him if I could try out his bike. He was a bit surprised by that. I then lifted out the water-bottle and noticed the electric wire,” Bassons told L’Équipe.

The Frenchman is now set to be charged with sporting fraud by the magistrate in Périgueux.
