Gallopin attacks. Nobody follows him.

Sagan attacks. Everybody follows him.
Of course because he's strong, but also wouldn't be surprised if it's something to do with his attitude and cockiness. Riders don't like his celebrations and behaviour so stop him winning.

He seems to be worse every time regarding tactics. It's his fault for showing his hand too early and trying to show off on the descents instead of commit to a single, flat out attack. Rui Costa looses 1.30 minutes, bad day after the rest?
If he doesn't others will ride away and the peloton will stop, that's the problem of not having a team and everyone wanting to beat Sagan.
 
Gallopin did a masterpiece whereas Sagan is lately relying on others to bridge the gap for him, when he should know by now that nobody will carry him a single meter closer to the line to be out sprinted....

silly Sagan:D

bit harsh on cannondale. must be very hard at the end of a tough hilly stage to have guys capable of pulling back every guy who takes a flier off the select front group
If they have just one guy there that is able to jump away with a group once or twice, Sagan would've won 2 stages already.

Not silly...too good. It's been said before, nobody helps him, everybody chases after him.
 
Hard to blame the team here.

If he doesn´t close the gap after Kwiatko attack Kwiatko would win easilly.

Unfortunately Kwiatko does not care about second place.

This is cycling. Well played by Gallopin. Nobody can stop all attacks.

Well deserved winner.
