LONGWY: Peter Sagan is the man with the strength, the security, and ability to remedy the mistake that could be fatal. A man with an extraordinary strategic vision that allows him to stay covered up to the last 400 meters of the terrible 2,000 finals and then to play his best card.
Everyone try to win the race, the most convinced is the Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet who seems to do all by himself but then goes to support Richie Porte. Then also Alberto Contador try to win the race but it seems that he does not have enough power to stand there. Yet he is one who points to the victory of this Tour.
Sagan’s mind is fast, he looks at his rivals, his mind analyze the situation and then the legs respond. He is hardly mistaken and does not let himself be conditioned by the predictions.
The right pedal try to stop him, it hangs at 300 meters and it seems all goes wrong. Instead, Sagan puts everything in place and relaunches. Mattheuws laughs at approaching him but the Slovak triumphs is crazy.
What about Italy? The future is here and is called Alberto Bettiol, today 5th
