Yesterdays relegation and point deduction for Goss has taken almost all of the sting out of his challenge for the Green Jersey and all but ensured Sagan will claim in Maillot Vert in only his first Tour de France. Aslong as he can stay upright for the remaining 7 stages of course.
As if Sagans bike wasn’t cool enough hes added a bell just incase.
The final stage of the 2012 Tour of California saw, you guessed it Peter Sagan taking his 5th win out of 8. Rabobank’s Robert Gesink finished safely within the bunch to take the overal and in doing so becomes only the 2nd Non-American to win The Tour Of California, Garmin’s Dave Zabriskie finished 2nd (46” back) & teammate Tom Danielson rounded out the top 3, 54” back.
What a win from AG2R’s Sylvain Georges, the Frenchman won after being the lone survivor of the days break after all but 1.5KM in the attack. Liquigas’ Peter Sagan took the bunch sprint for 2nd and consolidates his lead in the sprint standings, as Dave Z stays in Yellow for the queen stage upto Mt Baldy tomorrow.
