Cavendish was penalized 20 seconds after officials said the High Road rider grabbed onto the side of a team car while trying to catch back on to the peloton.
"These are the rules that we all live by," said Jim Burrell of Medalist Sports, the race's production team. "These are officials who are appointed by the international governing body. We as race organizers have no pull or say in their process."
The tour concludes Sunday with a 93 mile trip from Santa Clarita to Pasadena, where the 8-stage event will conclude with five laps around the Rose Bowl.
