‘Pay-to-race’ allegations denied by Tour de la Provence



Tour de la Provence organisers have denied operating a pay-to-race scheme, despite insinuations from a team manager, and Bora-Hansgrohe being added to the start list after signing up as event sponsor.

On Monday, the manager of Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux, Hilaire Van Der Schueren, was quoted in Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblad, claiming his team were scheduled to appear in the February race but were replaced by another team who’d made a ‘financial proposal’ that included paying for their hotels.
