Sagan ends legal dispute over Tour disqualification

PARIS: World champion Peter Sagan and the International Cycling Union (UCI) on Tuesday agreed to end the legal dispute about the rider’s disqualification from this year’s Tour de France.
Sagan was sensationally kicked off the Tour for elbowing British rival Mark Cavendish in a hectic sprint finish to the fourth stage in Vittel.The Slovak and his Bora team immediately appealed the decision, but the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) denied the request for a temporary suspension to allow Sagan to complete the Tour.
“Subsequently, however, all parties involved had the opportunity to provide evidence and call witnesses,” the UCI said in a statement.“The parties agreed that the crash was an unfortunate and unintentional race incident and that the UCI Commissaires made their decision based on their best judgment in the circumstances.“On this basis, the parties agreed not to continue with the legal proceedings.”
