Peter Sagan to appear in front of CAS over Tour de France disqualification

Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will hold a hearing on 5th December on the disqualification of Peter Sagan from the Tour de France.

The World Champion and Bora-hansgrohe filed a case with the CAS just after an incident on stage four of the Tour de France.

The crash into Vittel saw Sagan disqualified from the race after it was judged that the Slovakian had raced dangerously, endangering multiple riders.

During the final sprint, Mark Cavendish was pushed against the fences by Sagan and broke his right shoulder blade and eventually abandoned the race.

Sagan’s team announced that an appeal had been lodged with CAS two days after the incident, in order to see their sprinter re-instated in the race. The re-instatement never took place but the case against the UCI has rumbled on.
