He is the fan who made Pogacar angry, he is the one who promptly apologized and who al Vicenza newspaper he said: «Mine was not intended as a push but only as an encouragement, I am aware that it was a foolish thing for which I apologize to the athlete, with its staff and with all the fans.

I would like to reiterate that just a few minutes after the incident I wanted to personally apologize both to the race commissioners and to Silvio Martinello, a TV commentator I know well, for an inappropriate gesture that should never be done».
