Sagan: I had a plan for the victory salute

interview03.07.2012Stage 3- Orchies / Boulogne-sur-Mer

His ability seems limitless but Peter Sagan was in such demand at the finish that it was difficult for him to focus on one topic long enough to explain himself in English. Nonetheless, he expressed his thoughts in point form after winning his second stage...

“Two stage wins is good for me. I want the green jersey in Paris, I think. It's my objective. I think it's a big goal for me. To win a stage was also part of my plan even if I don't win another stage, I'll still try for the green jersey. And I'll win it, I think.
“Today I had a plan for the victory salute. I spoke with my friends at dinner and we agreed I should do [an impersonation of] Forest Gump at the finish.
“After a crash, I had to change my bicycle. I broke my chain.
“I'm very happy when I win. Today it was a finish for strong riders and I have very good legs.”
