That second story is in fact true and I read about it in an interview with Sagan

I think the story is he broke his frame, or something like that. So he borrowed his sister's bike, went on to win with that one.

I want to also say another time he broke his frame, of course there was not another one around the night before a race, they were scrambling and found a local welder who welded it back together, then he went to the race and won.

I heard it on a TV interview one time, he acts like everybody does that around his town.

We Slovakians are very resourceful when necessary. And fast/strong!

Default Greipel to ride one lap in Paris in flip-flops & bermudas

...apparently Greipel and Hansen got a bet whether Sagan would win 8th stage. Greipel lost so he obligated to ride one lap in Paris dressed in bermuda shorts and wearing flip-flops instead of bike-shoes.

Sagan's the best according to Boonen. Enough said!

PS: El Pisti has no longer a leverage.

Boonen is right on the money there. I'd be very surprised if we don't see Sagan winning at least one classic this year.

BP, and I am not talking fossil fuels here. Rainy conditions , Voeckler won the race.
Now we can think about Sagan.
