Lotto-Soudal file complaint against motorbike rider who knocked off Stig Broeckx

Lotto-Soudal hope that Stig Broeckx's collision with a motorbike will lead to safety measures being introduced to protect riders in races

Lotto-Soudal have filed a complaint against the motorbike rider who collided with their rider Stig Broeckx at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, leaving the Belgian out for several weeks.

Broeckx pulled out of the peloton across the road as a medical motorbike zoomed up the outside. It looked as if the motorbike driver should have had time to pull further across the road, but clipped the Lotto rider sending him crashing to the ground.
