Tyre sabotage brings race to halt
Police are investigating after carpet tacks were spread across roads bringing a major cycle race to a halt.
Just a few reasons why sabotaging the Étape Caledonia was wrong:
- it’s a charity event – it was supporting Macmillan Cancer
- it’s the only mass-start bike race of its kind in the UK
- the roads were closed for three whole hours; c’mon people, it’s not like it’s days of inconvenience.
At least the race will go on next year.
