Le Tour de France expels Tony Martin and Luke Rowe because of a fight during the race
During the 17th stage of the Tour de France 2019, there has been a scene that we do not like to see in this sport. Just during the ascent to La Sentinelle, Jumbo Visma's cyclist Tony Martin had a bad gesture with Luke Rowe of Team Ineos when they were disputing the position, then Rowe gave him a blow.
The organization has announced that both cyclists are expelled from the race and will have to pay a fine of € 911 each.

In the live images it was not possible to see that Luke Rowe responded with a blow to Tony Martin, but indeed in this video it can be seen how the Team Ineos cyclist hits him.
