TDF. Tour de France – Mark Cavendish also sanctioned for “prolonged shelter”

If the triggerassement and lthe pennumber of points received par Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck), author of a sprint judged irregular, were inevitably much commented on, the commissaires did not only sanction the Belgian this Thursday at the end of the 6th stage of the Tour de France won by Dylan Groenewegen (Jayco AlUla). Criticized after yesterday’s sprint for only punishing Phil Bauhaus (Barhain Victorious) while the sprint had been very stormy and would surely have deserved more, the commissaires this time did not let anything pass, and in particular a certain… Mark Cavendish.

The days follow one another and are not the same for Cavendish.

Lustenko also sanctioned

The sprinter ofAstana Qazaqstan Teamwho failed to find the opening during the final sprint in Dijon (19th) the day after his famous 35th victory on the Tour, was sanctioned for “extended shelter behind vehicle”, as indicated in the press release published by the jury after the race. The cause was this sequence 67 km from the finish where the Briton took advantage of the wake of the race management car for a little too long to get back to the peloton after a mechanical incident. In concrete terms, he was given a 40-second time penalty from which he easily recovered, but above all, 10 penalty points in the points classification (now 13th with 37 points), 15 points in the UCI classification and a fine of 200 Swiss franc. His teammate Alexey Lustenkowith whom he returned, also took a similar sanction.
