I know what he did was not pretty, but there is no way Peter Sagan elbowed Mark Cavendish on purpose. I can understand placing him last on the stage as punishment, but expelling him from the rest of the Tour de France this year...?! That's far too harsh!

We're only at stage 4, and the Tour has already lost some of the biggest names. Valverde on the first stage, Cavendish with this crash... and Sagan, due to this exaggerated punishment?!

Seriously, Tour judges: Kicking out the biggest star and main attraction of the race because of a mistake that happened in a chaotic sprint? Really?

As the kind of Sagan-fan I am, I'm heartbroken.

There's an appeal going, though. Not that I think it's going to make a difference, but I'm clinging to that little hope for now.

EDIT: Appeal declined. This is very sad. I can't believe they're going through with this stupidity. It's unfair, there's no other word for it.
