The UCI condemns the racist insults to Nacer Bouhanni

The organization, which is investigating the runner for his dangerous maneuver in Cholet-Pays de la Loire, denounced the insults suffered by the French cyclist.


The International Cycling Union (UCI) has condemned the racist comments against the French runner of Algerian origin Nacer Bouhanni (Arkea Samsic), who announced that he will report to the courts the attacks against him after the incident that he starred in a sprint of the Cholet race -Pays de la Loire, in which the British Jake Stewart was injured.

In a press release, the UCI came out to condemn the racist attacks against the French cyclist.

"The UCI strongly condemns the racist attacks against French runner Nacer Bouhanni on social media after his disqualification due to his dangerous behavior during the final sprint of the Cholet-Pays de la Loire event."

The highest body in world cycling, which will judge Bouhanni's irregular behavior in that competition, does not consider the insults he receives justifiable.

"Nothing justifies the insults of which he was a victim in the days after the fact of which he is accused" .

The UCI recalls its unconditional commitment against any form of discrimination, whatever the reasons.

"This Federation, either through its statutes, its Code of Ethics or its programs, defends and promotes the principles of inclusion and respect for others."
