Peter Sagan: "My day will come"

interview11.07.2014Stage 7- Épernay / Nancy

Second in stage 7 and green jersey.

When I win, people complain that I win easily and now people think it's strange that I don't win, but the reality is that it's not easy to win. I thank my team-mates for the huge work they've done by pulling all day. I've had to try and attack in the last climb but I looked back and I saw the group coming across. I've tried my best at the end. I was close to winning but I didn't win. I've never thought I was the winner. I knew it was tight so I was waiting for the result. I'm still up there. This is another good day for the green jersey but something extra is missing and that's a stage win. However, there's still a long way away in the Tour de France and my day will come. At least I hope so.

He attacked in the last climb and sprinted in a crash marred finale but had to accept another defeat.
