Cycling fans create conspiracy theories to explain Chris Froome’s horror crash

If you’re a cycling fan, you’re probably aware of British cyclist Chris Froome’s horror crash which has ruled him out of this year’s Tour de France and perhaps put an end to his career.

The crash was initially met with sympathy, but now certain cycling fans are calling Froome’s crash a part of a larger conspiracy theory.

To discuss conspiracy theories in sports, The Daily‘s Alex James was joined by Dr Mathew Marques, Lecturer in Social Psychology at La Trobe University.
