Peter Sagan has all but won a fourth consecutive maillot vert according to his rivals racing the final week of the Tour de France.

Sagan left the Pyrenees on Thursday with a narrow two point margin over Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal), but he has, after two ‘transition’ stages, increased this to 61 points with second place in Rodez yesterday and fifth place at the end of stage 14 in Mende on Saturday.
