Peter Sagan wins Tour Down Under stage three in the Adelaide Hills

Three-time world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) won stage three of the Tour Down Under, repeating his 2018 success in Uraidla

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) took his first victory of the 2019 season with a win on stage three of the Tour Down Under in the Adelaide Hills.

Just like he did last year in the same finishing town of Uraidla, Sagan mixed it with the puncheurs and climbers and was too fast for Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-Scott) and Luis León Sánchez (Astana) in the finishing sprint; the only difference from 2018 was that Sánchez and Impey swapped second and third position, the former rolling in behind Sagan.
