Dutch Bos banned 1 month for shove

7/3/2009

MONACO -- Dutch rider Theo Bos has been
suspended for one month for sending South African Daryl Impey
crashing into a security barrier during a Tour of Turkey stage
in April, the International Cycling Union said on Friday.

Rabobank's Bos, a five-time track cycling world champion,
grabbed race leader Impey of the Barloworld team by the shoulder
and pushed him into a barrier less than two miles before the
finish line of the final stage.

"Bos's behavior undermined the image, reputation and
interests of cycling and of the UCI," the union said in a
statement.

The suspension will start Aug. 15.
