Based on the timing, it was on the liaison, which is on public roads.

Easier to just have him on there, just in case. What it seems like to me.

Exactly.

Reports say that Thomas was killed in a crash with a police vehicle. It's now coming from different local journo sources, so fear it's true.

Thomas Bourgin, 25, from St. Etienne

I can see the video, Casalli followed by Chelco followed by Faria in a group ride.
And CDP cursing in the Biv at the end of the day....
