Team Sky announced that it has suspended Gianni Moscon after the Italian used racially abusive language towards FDJ rider Kevin Reza at the Tour de Romandie last week.
“Following a disciplinary meeting with Team Sky concerning an incident at the Tour of Romandie, Gianni Moscon has been given a formal written warning and suspended from racing for six weeks”, a Team Sky statement read.
“He will also attend a diversity awareness course. Gianni recognises that his behaviour was wrong and how seriously Team Sky take this kind of incident”.
“He apologised to Kevin Reza after the stage and again to him and his team the following morning, and this apology was accepted. Gianni knows that there is no excuse for his behaviour and that any repeat will result in termination of his contract”.
