Sagan - "I need to recover after the crash..."

interview01.07.2013Stage 3- Ajaccio / Calvi

For the second successive day Peter Sagan has been the runner-up in the race for stage honours. He hopes the effects of injuries sustained in a crash on day one of the 2013 wear off and that he gets back to top form...

“I want to wear the green jersey all the way to Paris and I'm happy to be in the lead of this category again. If you want to know about the sprint, you'll have to ask the winner... not me. I was just second.

“I did my sprint but I didn't feel very good after the crash in the first stage. But I'm happy to have the green jersey and I hope that, day-by-day, I feel better because I need to recover after the crash.

“I'm happy to earn points which I also did today but we will see how we can manage in the days to come, especially in the sprints but I hope that the first crash is the only one I have and that I don't crash anymore.”
