The wait goes on for Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo). The now four-time green jersey winner will continue to hunt for a first stage win at the Tour de France since 2013, but despite that, said he was content with his performance after the conclusion of the Tour in Paris on Sunday night.

The Slovakian champion continued his remarkable consistency in the race, finishing second no less than five times. And that, coupled with some extraordinary breakaway performances, saw him dominate the green jersey points competition for another year, in spite of the organisers changing the rules to make it a closer competition.
