The Peter Sagan rainbow run was due to end midway through the Vuelta a España, but the world champion has decided to continue the race with his Bora-Hansgrohe team in an attempt to net one more win.

Sagan's last victory in the rainbow jersey was at the Tour de France. He won three times in total, but only in the Roche-sur-Yon stage two was he not wearing the green points jersey.
