There’s sneaky cheating and then there’s blatant in your face cheating. 2014 Tour de France winner, Vincenzo Nibali, has been kicked off the current Tour of Spain race after being filmed getting a ride from his team car. And it wasn’t even like he was at the back of the bunch. Nibali was at the front when the team car pulled up next to him and sped off with him holding on for 200 meters.
That’s the moment the car pulled up next to him before it accelerated away leaving a whole bunch of confused cyclists in his wake.
Nibali was trying to catch the peloton after crashing earlier during stage 2 of the race. Officials decided to disqualify him and his team director, Alexander Sheffer, who was driving the Astana car.
Now you know.
