We need to talk about Kévin
After a mediated handshake, not much seems open for discussion regarding the incident in which Michael Albasini used a racial slur against Kévin Reza. Albasini clarified his unrepeatable remark as a misunderstanding under duress of being in a breakaway. Alas, the Albasini test for racism would be: work your heart rate up to Zone 4 or 5, say some ethnic slurs, then figure out if you mean it or if you are just stressed. What a crock of bullshit! That the almighty ASO actually involved itself to resolve the situation indicates how the Tour de France org feared the incident may blow up and tarnish the event.
This. All of this.
