Team Sky has accepted the decision of the Tour de France organisation to disqualify Gianni Moscon from the race. The team will consider the case after the grand tour is over to study any further actions.

The British team has sent a short press release after the expulsion of the rider due to an aggression against Fortuneo-Samsic's Elie Gesbert. "We support and accept the decision by the race organisers to exclude Gianni Moscon from the Tour de France," said team principal sir Dave Brailsford. "Gianni is desperately disappointed in his behaviour and knows that he has let himself, the Team and the race down.

"We will address this incident with Gianni once the Tour is complete and decide then if any further action should be taken. I would like to offer my sincere apologies to both Elie Gesbert and Team Fortuneo Samsic for this unacceptable incident."

Team Sky also recorded a video apology of the rider in which he commented to regret his actions (see below).
