Mark Cavendish and Heinrich Haussler touched wheels just short of the finish line during a sprint finish in Stage 4 of the Tour de Suisse.
Cavendish, for now, plans to stay in the race in spite of road rash all over his body. Haussler withdrew from the race after the crash due to his injuries. Arnaud Coyot has a broken hip.
Cavendish was fined 200 Swiss francs, had 25 points taken from him in the sprinter competition and 30 seconds from his GC standing after race judges determined Cavendish was at fault in the crash.
The Tour de Suisse ends Sunday with a time trial.
