Bouhanni denounces racist attacks after shutting down Stewart

The Arkéa-Samsic runner reported having suffered these "racist abuses" after the incident. "I am going to report, I have been enduring this for a long time," he said.


In French, Nacer Bouhanni (Arkéa-Samsic) has denounced the series of racist attacks through social networks as a result of the incident that caused a sprint in the Cholet-Pays de la Loire test, in which the British Jake Stewart was injured .

As a result of that set that cost Stewart a hand fracture, the UCI announced possible disciplinary sanctions for the Frenchman.

Bouhanni, (Épinal, 30 years old), an Algerian cyclist, apologized for the "involuntary" collision with Stewart, but claimed to have been subjected to "racist abuse", and is willing to file a complaint against the offenders.

The sprinter commented that a cycling website indicated that "I should go back to Africa, that I am a criminal, that I am a North African who needs to be hospitalized", showing emojis of pigs, as reflected by Bouhanni on Instagram.

"I was born in France and I am going to file a complaint, because I have been enduring this for a long time and I have remained silent, but this time I will not let it pass. Never again."
