If Matej Mohoric had the feeling of having been “treated like a criminal” and considers that he has “nothing to hide” like his teammates, the victory of the Slovenian did not fail to arouse controversy, especially after his gesture on the finish line. “As soon as someone wins, it’s suspect. Especially in this country, used to that, we have the same thing every year on the Tour de France. But when we look in detail … To rub shoulders with them, I I know what they do, I know who they are. It is truly unfair to consider them like that, estimated Barnabé Moulin. Slovenia is as big as Brittany, it is about the same population. If we had two Bretons at the same level, we wouldn’t be asking the question. “
