CAS rejects Sagan


ZURICH: The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Thursday rejected Slovak cyclist Peter Sagan's appeal of his Tour de France ejection stemming from a sprint collision that knocked rival rider Mark Cavendish out of the race with a broken shoulder blade.

A race jury disqualified Sagan on Tuesday.

Sagan, the current world champion and a member of Germany's Bora-Hansgrohe team, said that he did not cause the crash.
