Quick Step warns of bus tour fraud

Someone in Belgium has found a new way to make money out of professional cycling, but not in a legal way. Team Quick Step this week issued a statement warning that someone named Marnic is approaching people on the street, introducing himself as the team bus driver and as rider Wilfred Cretsken's brother-in-law. The man offers to show fans the team bus for 100 Euros.

"This person has nothing to do with the Quick Step team and is a fraud!" the team has warned. "Please don't believe this man, you will not see him again after the payment and you will lose your money."
