Woman who threw a hat at Mathieu van der Poel during Paris-Roubaix asked to either meet three conditions or face a lawsuit

French cycling union has prepared an official lawsuit against the woman that threw a cap at Mathieu van der Poel during Paris-Roubaix. However riders' union UNCP is prepared to drop the case if the woman meets three conditions, including an open apology for her action in the final of Paris-Roubaix.

According to WielerRevue, the UNCP, a riders' union affiliated with the CPA, has indicated that they want to stop the legal proceedings if the Belgian woman agrees to three conditions. The union wants her to acknowledge that she threw a hat at Van der Poel.

In addition, the woman must join 'Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix' as a volunteer, an association that maintains the historical cobblestone sections of the spring classic every year. Finally, the riders' union wants women to be involved in a new campaign on safety that will be broadcast to the international cycling public. In that case, the woman also has to show her face and will therefore be extra in the spotlight.

If the hat thrower agrees to those three demands, the UNCP will forget about the lawsuit. Otherwise, union president Pascal Chartier will continue to pursuit the lawsuit in court. The accused woman's lawyer has received the proposal. "We will now discuss it in depth to see if we can address it. My client wants to take responsibility, but we want to look at the proposals first," she responds.
