TV footage recorded showed Moreno pulling alongside Rosa and apparently exchanging words. Moreno then appears to shove the Italian rider as he rides away. Rosa claimed he crashed as a result of the exchange.

You can all see what happened,” Rosa said. “It was a stressful moment of the race. If a guy pushes the other guy out of the road … if he drops, and crashes, and breaks his bike. I fell, and changed my bike. It was a moment of stress, and we ran into each other, and then he touched me. I touched him, and then he threw me off.”
