Quinn Simmons is unlikely to race with Trek-Segafredo again this season, with the team still to decide on the length of his suspension. The American was suspended on Wednesday evening for making social media posts that the team described as “divisive, incendiary, and detrimental.”

Speaking ahead of the Giro d’Italia Grande Partenza in Palermo on Thursday, Trek-Segafredo general manager Luca Guercilena said that a decision on the 19-year-old’s status will be taken in agreement with team owner Trek Bikes.
