Carapaz lost one minute to his direct rivals in the first-category Picón Blanco summit finish Monday, and also received a 20-second penalty from the race jury.
Officials hit Carapaz with the penalty for an unauthorized feed, and also fined Ineos Grenadiers sport director €1,000.
In April, Carapaz was disqualified from Liège-Bastogne-Liège for using the banned “super tuck” position during the spring monument.
Penalties for illegal feeds can prove costly on a rider’s overall time, similar to what sent Julian Alaphilippe out of the yellow jersey in the 2020 Tour de France.
