Television images showed Peter Sagan taking shelter behind the Sunweb team car as it spoke to its rider in first chase group in the closing kilometres of Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday, with the television commentators arguing that he should be penalised. However, organisers said there would be no penalty.

“The jury has seen the pictures, but no penalty will be assesed, for two reasons,” Frank Hoste told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“There has been no complaint and especially … the action has had no effect on the outcome, the jury president decided in the case.”
