Team Sky’s Tour Down Under squad have been ‘verbally educated’ by police after being seen to commit ‘a number of traffic offences’ in the Adelaide.
A photo posted on social media showed Team Sky riders standing by the roadside as officers from SA Police gave them a warning over their behaviour.
A spokesman for the force said the riders “allegedly failed to give way at a pedestrian crossing and went through a red light … that sort of thing.”
“As part of Operation Safe Cycling 2018 police officers spoke to a number of cyclists on Pulteney Street in the Adelaide CBD this morning after identifying a number of traffic offences committed by the group,” the spokesman said.
A media release before either of the two incidents outlined that police in Adelaide would run Operation Safe Cycling during the Tour Down Under.
