Winning the Tour of Poland today marks Peter Sagan’s first stage race win at “World Tour” level. It wasn’t long ago when he was riding around town on his mountain bike.
But he started with a bang. The Tour Down Under was his first pro road race on the stage up Willunga Hill he made the break with Cadel Evans, Lance Armstrong and Alejandro Valverde, despite several stitches from a crash. If he’s come a long way, he’s probably going to go far too.
