James Knox criticizes Tour Down Under disqualification for drafting cars after crash

Following his disqualification from the Tour Down Under for drafting behind team cars after he was caught in a crash 55km from the end of stage 1, James Knox has called out a conflict between UCI rules and rider safety.

The Briton had undergone a concussion check following his crash, which was among a spate of falls throughout the peloton during the stage, and then had to stop again to change bikes. However, UCI commissioners at the race then disqualified him for drafting team cars in a bid to make his way back to the peloton.
