Giro d’Italia sprinter Jonathan Milan fined and docked UCI points for slipstreaming on final stage

 Jonathan Milan’s bid to get back on terms with his fellow sprinters on the final stage of the Giro d’Italia after a broken chain ended with a second place behind Tim Merlier (Soudal-QuickStep), overall victory in the points competition and, much later, a fine and points penalty from the UCI.

Milan was unlucky enough to have his chain break just six kilometres from the finish in Rome, meaning that – particularly with the Lidl-Trek team car a relatively long way back in the line of support vehicles – a frantic pursuit was in order to try and take part in the sprint.
