Sports court CAS rejects Sagan's appeal of Tour disqualification

ZURICH (Reuters) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Thursday rejected Slovak cyclist Peter Sagan’s appeal of his Tour de France ejection stemming from a sprint collision that knocked rival rider Mark Cavendish out of the race with a broken shoulder blade.
