Sagan Takes Gent-Wevelgem 2013

Peter Sagan (Cannondale) has won Gent-Wevelgem. The Slovak wunderkind surged away from the lead group in the last four km to take the hilly, 191-km classic in 4:29:10. Borut Bozic (Astana) outsprinted Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) for second at 0:28.

said, "I tried to follow him but it wasn't possible. I think Sagan is a bit stronger than the rest of us for the moment." Cavendish expressed the same sentiment when he said, "...Sagan is a machine. He deserved to win today."
