Mark Cavendish on Monday called for Italian cyclist Roberto Ferrari to be expelled from the Giro d'Italia after Ferrari clipped Cavendish's wheel and caused a massive pileup near the finish of stage three. "Is the team of Roberto Ferrari or the UCI going to do the right thing?" Cavendish tweeted after the accident. "Other riders, including myself, have been sent home for much less."
