Riders and commentators voiced their displeasure with the decision, and about two hours after the end of the stage, the jury announced that Sagan had officially been disqualified from the Tour for his role in the crash. Marien said they were applying UCI race rules that allow them to disqualify riders in "serious cases".

In the sprint finish, Sagan veered right towards and his elbow sent Cavendish slamming into the barrier.

Cavendish was taken to hospital with hand and shoulder injuries. Well, I've polished off my crystal ball and it's telling me that the stage will end in a sprint finish, but not until the breakaway comprising riders from Direct √Čnergie, Fortuneo-Oscaro and Wanty-Groupe Gobert has been reeled back in, perhaps agonisingly, before the fastmen get to work.

Cavendish wasn't happy with the contact he received from Sagan, who he felt hit him with an extended elbow.

A medical team quickly ran out to treat the Dimension Data team rider, jogging into the oncoming stream of riders to reach him.

The 50 points for winning also put him in contention to claim the green jersey for sprinters.

'A crash is a crash, I'd just like to know about the elbow, really.

"I definitely need stitches in this finger and in this fake ligament, it's something to do with that previous shoulder, just sat backwards", Cavendish said.

Demare, the 2016 Milan-Sanremo victor, took over the lead of the green jersey points classification after Marcel Kittel was caught up in the first crash that split the peloton before the final kilometre. "After, he just come and yeah, he just touched me and after the fence".

After Sagan's disqualification, Alexander Kristoff moved up to second place in the stage, with Andre Greipel in third.

Cavendish collided into the barriers with his right shoulder and hit the deck at top speed.

Thomas leads by seven seconds from Sagan, with Froome staying 12 seconds down.

"I'm not a doctor, I don't know what, but I'm not optimistic anyway".

"I'm used to crashing, so it's fine, I'm all ok". "When I had the pedal problem I wondered what happened, some more bad luck, but I had no time to think and I went again", Sagan said.

Eurosport is the home of the Tour de France.

"It's awesome, beating all the best sprinters like that at the Tour de France is something I'd hoped for, for a long time", said Demare.

The 160.5-kilometer (100-mile) leg begins in Vittel and winds its way to La Planche Des Belles Filles with a short but steep finishing ascent that features a leg-breaking 20-percent gradient in the final meters.
