Jumbo-Visma director Zeeman devastated by exclusion
Sports director Merijn Zeeman of Jumbo-Visma is very upset that he had to leave the Tour de France yesterday.
He apologizes on Twitter for his behavior after the seventeenth stage.
Zeeman became angry when a UCI commissioner damaged Primoz Roglic's bike during a check.
"I did not behave correctly verbally towards a UCI commissioner who wanted to do a bike check on Primoz's bike. I got angry because the commissioner independently removed the bracket (part of the frame, ed.) From the bike. from Primoz. During this dismantling, Primoz's bike was damaged. Despite this incident, I should have kept my cool and approached the UCI commissioner respectfully. I regret that I did not do this. "
