Dutch sue Tour de France for unpaid bill


THE HAGUE: The Dutch cycling federation is seeking to recover some 140,000 euros owed by ASO, the organizers of the Tour de France, for hosting the start of the 2015 race. “We have requested arbitration by the International Cycling Union (UCI) because ASO is refusing to pay the money,” Huib Kloosterhuis, director of the Dutch federation the KNWU, said. The 2015 Tour de France set off from the central Dutch city of Utrecht at the beginning of July. The Dutch federation says that “any organization which wants to organize a race in the Netherlands has to pay a certain sum” which varies according to the importance of the event.
