Peter Sagan disqualified from Tour de France after Stage 4 crash
Jul 05, 2017, 00:23
Sagan's 2017 Tour de France campaign is over' with an UCI official saying his actions "endangered several riders".
Sagan and Cavendish came together during the sprint for the Stage 4 win, with the Manx Missile trying to create space near the barriers. Cavendish, victor of the second-most Tour de France stages in history, tried to pass Stage 3 victor Sagan, but instead, he fell into a barrier, suffering what appeared to be a shoulder injury, and is likely out of this year's Tour.
Following Demare's wheel in a greatly reduced sprint, Sagan had veered across road and then appeared to flick his right elbow towards Cavendish's face.
"Yeah, [he apologised]. I get on with Peter well, but I don't..."
The crash, which NBC Sports commentators described as "gruesome", immediately generated controversy.
Cavendish went to hospital with his right arm in a sling and his Dimension Data team said that it is unsure he can continue in the Tour de France on stage five. "On his way to the hospital for further examinations", said Dimension Data on Twitter. "To elbow somebody off the bike at that speed is just an act of violence".
"Only one team can ride on the front and I think it's more important for me to have that help on the flat stages than the climbs". The crash was, on majority, Sagan's fault. "He did not have enough room".

"When I came to the finish, I was not feeling well, I was sick and dizzy in the stomach", Martin said. "I'm not a fan of him putting his elbow in me like that", Cavendish said. "I tried to catch him but when I caught him I saw how much was left, 400m, I said "no, it's too much", so I relaxed a bit before going again".
Although Sagan had come to speak to him at his bus after the stage, Cavendish said he still wanted an explanation about the elbow.
"It is a sprint", Sagan told reporters afterwards. "You don't want to go in thinking just of not losing time".
The race's yellow jersey holder, Britain's Geraint Thomas, hit the deck in a separate pile-up near the end, but as the incident occurred within the final three kilometers he will be credited with the same time as the victor. The first left dozens of riders on the ground, including current race leader Geraint Thomas of Team Sky. No serious injuries have been reported from that incident.
"I'm used to crashing, so it's fine, I'm all ok".
Cavendish wasn't happy with the contact he received from Sagan, who he felt hit him with an extended elbow.
