Watch: The incident which led to Nils Eekhoff’s disqualification

Samuele Battistella was declared the winner of the U23 road race at the World Championships¬†after Dutchman Nils Eeckhoff was disqualified for ‘illegally drafted behind a team car’.

The 21-year-old crashed early on the race, a fall that also caused a dislocation of the shoulder that he put back himself. In the footage he seems to grab a sticky bottle and then he used some drafting to return to the peloton.
