World champion Peter Sagan has been disqualified from the Tour de France for causing a crash in a chaotic sprint finish that left Mark Cavendish needing treatment for his injuries and further examinations in a hospital.
The Bora-Hansgrohe team and licence holder Denk insisted Sagan had done nothing wrong, adding that the rider was denied a hearing. Cavendish crashed, fracturing his shoulder blade, and withdrew from the Tour.
A team statement read: "The Team and Peter Sagan, represented by their counsels Prof".
On Wednesday Cavendish had praised the race jury for their original decision to exclude Sagan from the Tour, saying "it take a lot of balls to eliminate the world champion from the Tour de France".
"The rider and team appealed the exclusion of the rider by the UCI Commissaires Panel on 4 July 2017 following an incident during the sprint phase at the end of the 4thstage of the 2017 Tour de France (Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel)".
A two-time world champion and five-time victor of the Tour de France's points classification, Sagan is widely considered to be the cycling world's most popular competitor. "Peter Sagan stayed on his line and could not see Mark Cavendish on the right side".
The BORA-hansgrohe rider was initially penalised with an 80-point deduction after he appeared to force Cavendish wide using his elbow, prompting the Englishman to crash as he ran out of space against the barriers.
