Tour de France: Peter Sagan wears Yellow Jersey after second stage win

peter sagan

 

World Champion Peter Sagan has just won second stage of Tour de France which started only a couple of days ago. He has now taken the yellow jersey as reigning champion Chris Froome was able to win some time after first stage’s horrifying crash.

 

After a big pile of riders during the final three kilometers of the stage, Bora-Hansgrohe’s Sagan was able to keep his position and grab the yellow jersey after an impressive sprint on the final minutes and some bonus seconds he got after taking second place on Saturday’s first stage.

 

On the other hand, winner of five stages in last season’s Tour de France, Marcel Kittel, was unfortunately unable to sprint as he had planned to after facing with a flat rear tire only 7.5 kilometers to go.

 

Currently, Froome sits in 84th, only 67 seconds off yellow jersey.
