Peter Sagan and Bora-hansgrohe take Tour de France disqualification case to CAS… again

World champion's team is seek compensation as they continue to protest Sagan's innocence

World champion Peter Sagan and his Bora-hansgrohe team will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) as they continue to pursue the case that the Slovakian superstar should not have been disqualified from the 2017 Tour de France in July.

Sagan was booted out of the race for his part in the collision with Mark Cavendish, which saw the Manx sprinter crash out of the race on stage four.

He was initially relegated on the stage and handed points and time penalties before the race jury opted to disqualify him completely, just a day after he had claimed victory on stage three.

The world champion and his team vehemently protested his innocence, and made an express appeal to CAS for his immediate reinstatement but the original decision was upheld.

Now, however, CAS will hear their case again, with Bora-hansgrohe seeking financial compensation for what they believe was an unjust disqualification.

The hearing will be held in Lausanne on December 6, though it is not yet known if Sagan – who has recently become a father – will appear in person.
