3rd strike of Moscon in one season? According to FDJ he is responsible for Reichenbach's crash. Doesn't happen often that a team calls out a rider for causing a crash: https://twitter.com/EquipeFDJ/status/915265460878311424

Wow, this is getting serious. I can't see someone making a false complaint to the police because of some dislike of another person.

Says he has multiple witnesses from other teams willing to testify.

Where there's smoke there's fire. Moscon seems like not a great dude but there have been plenty of athlete's who are not great human beings throughout history. Not saying anything he's done is remotely acceptable or should be condoned but in the abstract it makes things more interesting having villains in sport. Other than 'bad dopers' who are/were some of cycling's bad boys?

I just struggle with Moscon's blatant disregard or acknowledgment of his poor decisions. I'm sure getting a little tow from a car to get back into the group isn't all that uncommon, but don't hitch a ride for a bit and then immediately go on the attack off the front of the group you just got towed to...
He seems to lack any moral compass, so it's easy to take someone else's word against his. And that's his own fault based on prior actions...

Not trying to protect Moscon cause he's a weak spot right now, but a team, especially WT team supposed to be always along the rules, shouldn't send out an accusation on a social media.
It's a poor man act.

Hmm, it seems to be the way to do it these days. Look at the FDJ riders hanging on a car, Moscon hanging on a car. Twitter is the new "official way" apparently. Probably a bad example, but even countries get governed on Twitter these days (Trump).

About Moscon, he seems to lack a moral line. It's a great rider but really need to work on his personal issues. What makes it worse is that this was the first race Reichenbach and Moscon rode together after Reichenbach tweeted (without calling Moscon by name) that racism incident that got Moscon suspended. If this push was pay back then they can't punish him hard enough, a few months ban in the winter doesn't hurt anyone. Let him miss the classics.

Moscon needs to sign with Quick Step :smartass: if there's anyone capable of taming him, I'd say it's Lefevere. plus he can steer his potential in the right way.

Of course not having seen the Moscon incident who knows, but I agree with Mickey its a worrying precedent, teams calling each other out on twitter. Still, gives the anti Sky brigade something to keep themselves occupied in the close season so its not all bad.

I'm just pumped for Lombardia. One of my favorite races of the year. Great way to close out the season.
