Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) says he is not bothered by the placings or near-misses, or the journalists remarking on when he fails to win in his rainbow jersey. The wins, like his third one in Ghent-Wevelgem, say it all.

The three-time world champion blasted ahead of the small group heading into to the small Belgian village to cap off the 2018 Ghent-Wevelgem. Doing so, he out-manoeuvred team Quick-Step Floors with four riders and topped a handful of top sprinters. It ended a run of bad-luck or podiums from Strade Bianche to E3 Harelbeke.
