Cycling > Tour de FranceVIDEO- WATCH'Supreme strength!- Peter Sagan loses chain but hangs on to win Stage 3
Marien said they were applying UCI race rules that allow them to disqualify riders in "serious cases".
Coming into the final metres of the stage, Sagan had swung across the road in pursuit of eventual victor Arnaud Démare (FDJ), apparently not realising Cavendish was following, and forcing him into the barrier.
The 30-time Tour stage victor was treated by medical staff before crossing the finish line with a bloodied and bandaged hand.
"Like I said, I get on with Peter, a crash is a crash, but I'd like to know about the elbow".
Cavendish stated that it would be for the jury to decide whether anything further would come of it, while Dimension Data sports director Roger Hammond said he was "furious" and "that everyone on this team has a right to be angry". "A crash is a crash but I'd just like to know about that elbow really".
"In terms of pain-wise, I've done my shoulder twice before and I'm in more pain now than I was for one of my shoulders - that doesn't make me too optimistic, just on feeling, but I'm not a doctor", he said.
Initial suggestions had been that Sagan would be relegated by 30 seconds in the day's results, effectively stripping him of his second place finish and the points that come with it.
"It was a bit weird, Richie went strong with 600-700m left. I'll have to get it looked at".
'Transformers: The Last Knight' debuts to a franchise low Universal Pictures' " The Mummy ", dropped two spots in its third weekend to land at third with 162,000 admissions sold. It took in $196.2 million outside of North America over the weekend, including an impressive $123.4 million in China .
In all the furore of another bunch pile-up, French champion Demare's achievement of becoming the first Frenchman to win a Tour stage in a sprint finish since 2006 was nearly lost.
There was another crash earlier that delayed Tour leader Geraint Thomas, but the Welshman retained the yellow jersey since it happened in the neutral zone near the stage finish.
Australian Michael Matthews was second on the stage with Dan Martin of Ireland third, just ahead of Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet in fourth.
Sagan had finished the bunch sprint in second but when he was disqualified it moved Alexander Kristoff into second and Andra Greipel into third.
Wednesday's fifth stage should see the top guns in action as the 160.5-km ride from Vittel will finishup La Planche des Belles Filles, a lung-busting 5.9-km climb at an average gradient of 8.5 percent.

But Kvitova broke again in the opening game of the second set, before Safarova decided she could not continue. I played four matches already, so it's a good record and good preparation for the final.
