Peter Sagan took his first victory of the season this weekend winning Kuurne-Brussels Kuurne. I’m a big fan of Sagan, he’s one of the most talented cyclists in the world at the moment and he’s an absolute kick to watch.
In the final few hundred meters, Sagan out-sprinted defending champion Jasper Stuyven and Team Sky’s Luke Rowe for the win. The win also marks a significant milestone for Peter Sagan, as it was his 90th as a professional cyclist. I’m sure we’ll see plenty more exciting from Sagan this year as the season is just getting started.
Sagan on the win, from VeloNews:
“Today I felt good, thanks to the team because they did good work on the Kwaremont,” said Sagan, referring to one of the course’s most difficult cobbled climbs. “The whole team was pulling for me. I wondered if the group would make the catch and we’d have a normal bunch sprint, but after they started attacking on the first lap, after that I was in the front in the breakaway and was really glad the guys in the front were working well.”
