It is something he takes pride in and it pays off. From signing autographs, to taking pictures, or even sipping coffee at a coffee house with some strangers is only one of the traits that separates Sagan from the crowd.
The man standing in Sagan’s way is the young Colombian rider, Fernando Gaviria.The 23 year old phenom has begun his Tour campaign with 2 stage wins already and has proven too be a fierce competitor. Peter Sagan, is no stranger to a challenge, nor having the target on his back. Peter can overcome the challenges he will face as the Tour continues.
