Former Tour de France winner Stephen Roche guilty of fraud

May 2, 2022

Roche has been ordered to repay $1.1 million after a Spanish court proved that he negligently bankrupted his Majorca firm, using its assets to pay for his own extravagant lifestyle. The civil court ruling determined that Roche used funds from his cycling tour company to pay for his own bills, as opposed to pay creditors. As a result of these actions, he has been banned from working as a company director in Spain for seven years. There could also be further criminal prosecution. Canadian Cycling Magazine
