Peter Sagan: "I can't remember any stage as hard as today's"

July 19 th 2018 - 19:26

It’s been a really hard day, I can’t remember any stage like this. It’s been difficult for everybody but I survived, it’s OK. I’m sorry for Gaviria, Greipel and Groenewegen [who pulled out], but it was really hard also for me. Tomorrow it could be a sprint, but with some sprinters less, it could also be harder to keep the race under control. Now, the green jersey for me is not about counting the points, it’s about staying healthy. We still have the third week ahead of us.
