He was thus fined 500 Swiss francs (500 euros), coupled with a loss of 25 UCI points for

“throwing waste outside the area provided for this purpose”

.

If the Belgian rider were to repeat the offense during the next stages, the note could be much higher.

He could then be sanctioned with a one-minute penalty as stipulated in the UCI regulations in force since last season.

A third deviation would result in the definitive exclusion of the rider.
