Paris-Roubaix cap-throwing spectator offered a deal to avoid legal action

A woman accused of intentionally throwing a cycling cap at Mathieu van der Poel during his ride to victory in Paris-Roubaix has been offered a deal to avoid charges of intentional assault and battery.

The incident came with 42km to go in the 2024 edition of Paris-Roubaix while Van der Poel was in the midst of a winning solo breakaway. The women could be seen in video throwing her hat toward Van der Poel’s bike. Fortunately, the cap bounced off did not get lodged in his drivetrain or cause any other problems.
