The UCI disciplinary commission has dropped the case against Team Sky's Gianni Moscon, who had been accused of pushing and causing Sébastien Reichenbach (Groupama-FDJ) to crash in a race last October 3.

Reichenbach said that Moscon purposely caused him to crash in the 2017 Tre Valli Varesine. The Swiss rider broke his elbow and fractured his hip in the fall. The incident came after the alleged racist remarks that Moscon made to former FDJ team-mate Kévin Reza.
