Sagan Wins Stage 7 of Tour
Before today, Peter Sagan (Cannondale) had finished second in three stages of this year’s Tour de France. Today, however, the Slovak broke through. Sagan took a bunch sprint to win Stage 7, a hilly, 205.5-km ride from Montpellier to Albi, in 4:54:12. John Degenkolb (Argos-Shimano) finished second, and Daniele Bennati (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff) took third. Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEdge) remains the maillot jaune.
3 Domaines, will take the riders over the hors categorie Col de Pailheres (166 km) and the Category 1 ascent to the finish. The flatlanders will go into survival mode, and the GC contenders will assert themselves. A breakaway will probably not decide the stage. The heads of state will battle on the final climb. Who will win? Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff)? Chris Froome (Sky)? Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha)? And who will wear the maillot jaune ? Froome? Contador? Cadel Evans (BMC)?
