Florian Sénéchal claims a fan poured urine on him while he was riding Paris-Roubaix on Sunday, after being sprayed with a pungent liquid with just over 25km left in the race.

The Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl rider believes a spectator threw a mixture of urine and beer on him as he was exiting the 1.3km Cysoing à Bourghelles cobbled sector, dampening Sénéchal's spirits further as he questioned why someone would do such a thing.
