    Well done OBE, Sagan had to be teamed up against and they did it with the numbers, Turbo and Impey were awesome, great sprint Matthews.

  • AMK3072

    Amazing what you can achieve when there is ONE leader.

    Great result, well done Bling.

    OBE should be backing him more than they have. He may not be leaving if they had done so.

    Could not have executed it any better. Gee sagan was strong to pull huge turns for most of the stage, close down attacks and still contest the sprint.

    Well ridden Orica-BikeExchange and Matthews however what a great display of positive riding from Sagan who rode on the front for much or most of the break, caused the split in the break by attacking, and then continued to ride mostly at the front (at speed) to ensure the break stayed clear while watching over his shoulder for attacks. Then, when beaten by Matthews (who had rightly done a fraction of the work Sagan had done) was the first to congratulate Matthews win.
    How good to see a positive rider who will ride to everyone’s benefit and would willingly risk placing instead of winning rather than play hide and seek games too early which leads to negativity from other riders leading to a good break getting caught. A la some of the other quality riders in the original break. Sagan realised too many quality riders were bludging at the back and they would be fresh to cause problems later in the race so he made the attack to reduce the selection at the right time. These efforts by one rider as we know reduces the strength and therefore the riders chances in the finale.
    I realise in pro cycling the onus rests on the favourite to make the race work but this was a fantastic and unselfish ride by Sagan.

    Sagan is rapidly becoming a cycling legend!
