That would be my initial reaction also...

We'll see if anything comes of it.

Cav would have been bitching up a storm if that crap had been pulled on him!

Relgated, to last or points removed from this stage and others or tossed -- seemed pretty blatant in the replay.

he's such a little punk. pathetic move. I hope Sagan does a wheelie on his fancy-ass venge.

The internet is blowing up over his "irregular sprinting".

Ease up there guys. Hard curve to the left, the guy who went down was not going for the line as Cav was. STUPID stage finish.

The Daily Mail is not in his corner.......

I guess tweets can only do so much damage control. Lets see how the rules are 'interpreted'.

Kind of tough to tell. Cav is coming around Veelers on the right and at the last second Veelers seems to make a slight move to the right just as Cav is making his move to go left around in front of him. they just ended up in the same place at the same time. Cav just cut it too close. This is the danger of the lead outs slowing as they peel off in the middle of the group. I'm amazed more crashes don't happen this way.

Yeah, upon looking at it a few times...I am going to give Cav a pass. The dude was not sprinting. First rule of sprinting is that when you get stuck in like that, you don't sit up and you protect yourself and your position. He did neither. He should have had his elbows out and up out of the saddle to be able to take that bump, as it was not a serious shot.

Punk move. The guy gets every benefit of riding behind cars to catch the pack for miles at a time, and then quite obviously knocks this guy down. Completely lame. What a lame move.

Looking at the twitter vid, you can see Cav lean in left and put his shoulder out well before he passes Veelers and has plenty of room on the right to go around. A punk move on Cav's part

Come on guys. I mean seriously? Clearly the UCI did this to take the heat off the Sky doping issues. Cav did it as a patriotic Brit at the request of Patty boy.

I looked at it a bunch of times and going by the road stripes it looks as though Veelers went right and was looking under his arm as Cav was trying to around him. I can see a sprinter getting royally pissed when a lead out guy actively blocks him and slows down. I have not seen it properly on TV yet though. It would be pretty amateurish to block like that. If that's what happened.

Veelers sat up in the middle of a pack sprint with 250 to go with Cav on his wheel, what is Cav going to do? He had to come over the top. Then Veelers veers to his right as Cav is passing (watch the white line). It was Cav or Veelers going down. Cav did what he had to do.
