The word 'expulsion' sounds very dramatic, but really all it means is the organisation have decided you cannot continue... I would be very surprised if it was due to 'bad behaviour' - it is far more likely to be either failing to meet your start time, missing [too many] way points, or a technical infraction, such as speeding on liaison or not having the full compliment of safety gear etc. at the start of a stage...
