In short, he was called by the UCI and told to shut up. Printed a retraction on his Facebook page in English. SKY news running the story also.
Without prejudice to the wider debate, Tony Martin made a bit of a hash of using this opportunity to highlight, what I read into it as being a long standing frustration with the whole Sky/Uci relationship didn't he?
Missed a bit of an open goal really by completely misrepresenting the rules as he thought they should be applied, so no surprise that the UCI pushed for a retraction.
Aside from view that there should be no public discourse on this matter from stakeholders, I suggest Martin was half wrong on the issue of provisional suspensions - It's not in the UCI rules for this type of offence, but I suggest a number of teams would provisionally suspend the cyclist.
