Sagan wins stage 2 in Oman

By ASO on February 12, 2013

Peter Sagan celebrated his first win of the season with panache. The second stage featured two climbs in the later part of the race which caused a major split in the peloton. The leading group during the split consisted of the key contenders Alberto Contador (Team Saxo-Tinkoff), Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), Chris Froome (Team Sky), Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky), Cadel Evans and Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team), Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Leopard). During the post race interviews Sagan gave his account of what had happened on the final climb of the stage: "It was difficult after the descent, Nibali attacked with two other riders and nobody wanted to work. I pulled on the front going at about 45kph, but everybody else left a gap. So I just went at the same pace on the last short climb, caught the others and then I attacked alone and arrived alone. The finish suited me but you always need the legs to win. I had them today." Sagan also takes the race leader's jersey and is nine seconds ahead of Tony Gallopin (RadioShack Leopard) in second place and 15 seconds ahead of Vincenzo Nibali(Astana Pro Team) who is in fourth place.
