Peter Sagan has bucked recent trends by starting his season with hairy legs, sporting his fuzzy look at the Tour de San Luis.
Former Liquigas teammate Vincenzo Nibali had a little gift for him ahead of stage four, but did the world champion accept it?
Sagan fobbed the gift off, not even getting the Bic out of the conspicuous brown envelope Nibali had concealed it in. It is, in fact, Sagan’s birthday on Tuesday, but Nibali obviously thought he’d get his present in early…
The Tinkoff rider’s leg foliage hasn’t seemed to slow him down at all, with the 25-year-old having finished second on stage two and his team came fourth in the opening team time trial.
He finished fourth on stage three, pipped in the sprint for second by Fernando Gaviria (Etixx-Quick Step) and Travis McCabe (Holowesko-Citadel).
Fortuneo-Vital Concept’s Eduardo Sepulveda holds the overall lead after his win on the race’s first summit finish on stage four. Dayer Quintana sits three seconds back, with brother and Movistar teammate Nairo behind Rodrigo Contreras (Etixx) in fourth.
