Following a stage win at the Tour of California, world champion Peter Sagan (BORA-Hansgrohe) has decided to stay in America to prepare for this year's Tour de France.

“I did not know what this course would be like because of my lack of rhythm, and because I had been training for a few days too. But I'm happy, I've have a stage win in my pocket," Sagan told Het Laatste Niuews. "I have the green jersey again, I am satisfied.”
