AG2R La Mondiale's sports director and team car also expelled

The Organisation of the Vuelta a España has decided to expel the directeur sportif of AG2R La Mondiale following the incident involving two riders grabbing the car during the 15th stage of the race.

The expulsion of Didier Jannel and the team car comes after the team itself decided to withdraw riders Nico Denz and Alexandre Geniez, in the morning after the second rest day.

During said rest day, a video circulated on social media showing an AG2R La Mondiale team car towing two riders uphill, allegedly during the last climb of the 15th stage of the Spanish Grand Tour.

The team car, which just like its driver has been taken out of the race, cannot be replaced.
