A Tweet at the Vuelta

In the past 24 hours, Velocast Productions tweeted a video presumably from a team car of Ag2r-La Mondiale riders getting a tow.

Then after the blowback, team members Alexandre Geniez and Nico Denz were removed from the race by management.

Interesting not for the sticky bottle tow, that happens all the time, but a tweet’s role in determining a race.

I don’t know if that’s ever happened and will guess here there was some sort of bargaining between team management. As noted in the Velocast tweet thread, self regulating in the bunch is very strong.

It’s a wonder that it needed to even get to Twitter.
