World champion disqualified from Tour de France for causing crash with Mark Cavendish
World champion Peter Sagan has been disqualified from the 2017 Tour de France for causing the crash which looks to have ended Mark Cavendish's race.
Sagan was initially docked 30 seconds after nudging Cavendish into the barriers at the end of stage four, which was won by Frenchman Arnaud Demare in Vittel.
But the race jury looked at the incident again and announced that the Slovakian's participation - and his bid to win a record-equalling sixth straight green jersey - is over.
