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.
