So I've watched this crash from a few different angles. Videos below. Gotta say I think a full disqualification from the rest of the race was way too harsh for Peter Sagan. Yes, from one angle you can clearly see him stick out his elbow. But from another, you can't really see that at all, and it looks like he was put in a very tight and bad situation, that he had to make the best of it, or crash himself.
Do you think he should have been disqualified for this crash??
Not surprisingly, Sagan appealed, and got quickly rejected. I think the committee is just playing it safe here.

Sucks all around, as Sagan stays out, and Cavendish broke his shoulder blade in the crash, and is obviously out of the race as well.
