Maybe he can ride for the proud boys. Trek probably prefers their riders to keep their politics to themselves.

It's wasn't about the 45th that got him in trouble. Research it further. The real issue is that social media is not "a cute place" anymore, and even wrongly interpreted mistakes are subject to 300% retaliation and unexpected accountability. Caveat Postor.

Phew. Thank God I didn't pick him for my team(s).

Public personae now. Live by the rules +/- whims, young man, or die by them.

couldn't he just shut up and dribble...er...spin? dunno for sure but randomly speculating his contract precludes such social media/public discourse.

Man and he had a two year contract. There's 10 guys over at Lotto-Soudal that would kill for that right now!

that headline is wrong. He got suspended for a tweet that was what the press likes to call, "racially insensitive." Granted, it was in the context of saying he was going to unfollow someone who had said something bad about 45.

Yes nothing is 'unbelievable' in a social media driven world.

Hope the guy is back racing soon.
