Andrey Grivko has been suspended from competition for a month and a half following his aggression against Marcel Kittel (Quick-Step Floors) during the Dubai Tour last February.

The UCI has announced the decision made by its Disciplinary Commission, saying that the Astana rider will be suspended for a period of 45 days from the 1st of May to the 14th of June 2017.

Grivko allegedly hit Kittel with the elbow in the face, breaking the latter's glasses and leaving a bloody gash. The only images that were available of the incident show the German with half of the face covered in blood.

The Ukrainian was expelled from the race that same day, even though he had stated that Kittel was the one that started the row by spitting in his face. Now he will be out of the Tour of Romandie, which was next on his schedule.
