MTB World Championship | Koretzky angry at arrival and makes umbrella gesture

The Frenchman received a fine from the UCI for such gestures, not exactly like a British gentleman: the reason refers to the position taken by the UCI regarding the starting ranking.

Victor Koretzky, French who finished in 4th place in the world Cross country won by Pidcock, at the finish line he takes it out on the public and makes the umbrella gesture.

It is a protest against the decision of theUCI to benefit other athletes to the detriment of bikers. In fact, Victor indicates the number and then launches into these nasty gestures (see video below). Honestly, in our opinion, these are a bit too blatant gestures that the public didn't deserve. Space for the video and its post on social media.

Chocolate medal for this world championship, very happy with the result and the sensations finally return. Congratulations to Tom on a great race! My gesture represented the injustice that was done to us by the UCI 1 day before the race and in no way against my opponents… Thank you all for the messages and next year I hope to be better placed in the uci ranking for hope for a medal – Victor Koretzky
