Sagan disqualified from Tour de France

July 6, 2017

[lightbox_login] World champion Peter Sagan has been disqualified from the Tour de France following stage 4 of the iconic cycle race.

Sagan was disqualified for causing a crash, which sent Cavendish into the barriers 120 metres before the finish line on the fourth stage. Cavendish broke his shoulder blade in the crash.

Cavendish had spent three months battling back from the Epstein-Barr virus in order to make the start line of the Tour in Dusseldorf, and his early exit will come as a bitter blow.

Sagan’s Bora-Hansgrohe team announced they had officially lodged a protest against the Slovakian’s expulsion.

France’s Arnaud Demare won the fourth stage and took the green sprinters jersey.
