I'm surprised the race organizers didn't do the honors. Maybe they talked it over with the team and gave them the option.

I suspect it was like you link says, the team was screaming in his ear to knock off the drafting....and he ignored them.

You flagrantly disobey your employers, and odds are your @$$ is grass.
“He absolutely ignored the team plan for the day, provided and requested by the sports director,” Konyshev continued.
The link said he ignored "team plan for the day". Really? So the team plan was to have him not draft another rider in an ITT (because it's illegal by UCI rules). That was the plan?

There is no question that if you ignore your employers, you are fired. I just thought it's odd that he would ignore them on something so trivial.
