The UCI has dismissed the case against Team Sky's Gianni Moscon. The cycling governing body stated that there wasn't enough evidence against the Italian rider in the episode of the Tre Valli Varesine.

Last October, Groupama-FDJ's Sebastien Reichenbach crashed during the Tre Valli Varesine and suffered fractures in his hip and elbow. The rider stated that Moscon pushed him off the bike and caused the accident and started a case against him in the UCI.

"Team Sky welcome the decision by the UCI to dismiss the case against Gianni Moscon," said the team in a press release. "It has been a lengthy process during which an independent panel heard evidence from all parties and found that there was not a case to answer.

"These were serious allegations which Gianni and the Team have always strongly contested."

Last season, Moscon had already been suspended by Team Sky because of racial slurs against Reichenbach's teammate Kevin Reza and was disqualified from the World Championships Road Race for hanging onto the Italian team car.

"We back Gianni and he has our full support. We are pleased he can now get on with racing with a line now drawn under this episode," continues the team's statement. "He is a very talented young bike rider who will have much to contribute to the Team over the coming months and years."

Reichenbach has also taken the case against Moscon to the Italian justice.
