Peter Sagan: "It's almost impossible to beat him..."

interview03.07.2013Stage 5- Cagnes-sur-Mer / Marseille

The winner of the green jersey last year is still wearing green but he's been beaten by Jan Bakelants, Simon Gerrans and Mark Cavendish in the 2013 Tour. The points tally continues to grow though, so he's happy enough...

“The sensations aren't fantastic yet but I was happy with my intermediate sprint and my performance in the final sprint. Day after day we'll see what happens. Today was really a stage for sprinters – pure sprinters... I lost a couple of points [to Cavendish] but that's okay, the important thing is to not lose too many. Mark is the fastest man in the world, it's almost impossible to beat him.”
