The Effort on the Day TA28
The announcers for Eurosport, Carlton Kirby and Daniel Lloyd felt that the stage and therefore the race could go to either Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) or Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) depending on the "effort of the day." Sagan certainly put everything he had into the day and managed to move himself up from third overall into second. But that elusive first place finish still seems to be just out of his reach, but then he has been here before last season but ended it by winning the World Championships in Richmond, VA. He did manage to keep the Maglia Rosso of the points leader, but the Maglia Azzuro of overall winner went to Greg Van Avermaet.
