The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will hold a hearing on the disqualification of Peter Sagan (Bora-hansgrohe) from the Tour de France.

The three-time World Champion and his team filed a case with the CAS just after the incident in the French Grand Tour. The hearing will take place five months after the incident, on December 5.

On July 4, during the sprint at the end of the fourth stage of the Tour de France, Dimension Data's Mark Cavendish was seemingly pushed against the fences by Sagan. The crash resulted in a broken shoulder for the Briton and an expulsion of the race for the World Champion.

With the hopes of returning to the race, he and his team took the case to the CAS, but only now a date has been set for the case to be processed.
