Swiss cycling team staff banned from Tour of California for dumping septic tank waste along highway – Washington Post
“Caught the [Swiss team] Katusha-Alpecin … dumping raw sewage from their RV on the side of highway 330,” the YouTube account of Ryan Patrick Early captioned the video, which appears to show two men outside an RV spraying liquid on the ground.
Early noted the highway where the men allegedly emptied their team’s septic tank runs adjacent to “running springs,” and that they tried to hide their misdeed by spraying it with water.
“Way to ruin the environment,” a voice can be heard telling the men in the video. “This is what we get when you guys come to Big Bear for the race. … Team 154 dumping their septic tank — I’ve informed the CHP [California Highway Patrol].”
