Can someone explain how people get penalised for a sticky bottle transfer but others are allowed to hang onto the car for a minute while they have a camelback shoved down their jersey as witnessed today at the men's road race WC

Has anyone been penalised for a sticky bottle? Can't recall seeing it.

I think there are generally accepted levels of 'cheating', like sticky bottles for a couple of seconds and pacing back on to the back of the bunch using the team cars after a mechanical, but sometimes the commissars aren't the most consistent in their interpretation. Zablinskaya got kicked out of the women's race yesterday for something. I think cycling is generally quite pragmatic in the application of the rules.
