The moment they rub shoulders to open a gap…dangerous action says Jury

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) has lost his 2nd place in the 11th stage of the Tour de France. Sagan was found pushing on Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) in the bunch sprint and was punished by the jury. In addition to his 2nd place, Sagan also loses crucial points in the battle for the green jersey.

Sam told Sporza: “I don’t want to win the green, due to someone gets points deducted…I want to win it on merit!! People might disagree with me, but at some point in the past few years, the rules for sprinting have become too strict, I want to take the jersey honestly. I have nothing good or bad to say about it, it is what it is. “
Bennett was outspoken about his own sprint. “I will be in the front far too soon. I got so used to the luxury of my leadout, but today I became isolated … I had to make the click in my head and find my own way. It took a while before I made that click and when I entered, it was too early. There was a headwind and it was slightly uphill. It was a mess. I don’t know what happened, I was just trying to limit the loss. “
