The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) has rejected the appeal of Bora-hansgrohe following the decision of excluding Peter Sagan from the Tour de France.

The Slovak was expelled after causing a crash involving Mark Cavendish, John Degenkolb and Ben Swift in the final sprint of the fourth stage on Tuesday.

Bora-hansgrohe took the case to the CAS a day later, saying that Sagan should be allowed to return to the race immediately.

The CAS announced its decision on Thursday, confirming that it is rejecting Bora-hansgrohe's request.

"The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) issued a decision rejecting an urgent request for provisional measures files by the Slovak cyclist Peter Sagan and the Denk Pro Cycling team in the afternoon of 5 July 2017. The rider and team appealed the exclusion of the rider by the UCI Commissaires Panel on 4 July 2017 following an incident during the sprint phase at the end of the 4th stage of the 2017 Tour de France (Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel).

"Accordingly, Peter Sagan remains disqualified from the 2017 Tour de France," the statement concludes without going into further detail.
