The Paris-Roubaix riders who swerved around level crossing barriers Sunday avoided disqualification but could face legal action after French railways SNCF filed a complaint Monday.SNCF said 29 people died in 2014 in accidents around level crossings.Part of the peloton managed to go through, others stopped, but a few riders swerved around the barriers seconds before the high speed train whizzed past, a move that is strictly forbidden under race rules.The race jury, however, decided not to sanction the riders.
