Team Sky's Gianni Moscon has been accused of "dangerous behaviour" after FDJ claimed that he caused Sebastien Reichenbach to crash at Tre Valli Varesine.

While Moscon would go on to finish seventh in the Italian race on Tuesday, which was won by Alexandre Geniez (Ag2r La Mondiale), Reichenbach crashed around 75km in to the 192.8km event, being taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with a fractured elbow that will put an end to his season.
