The King of Flanders RVV5
Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) has shook the curse of the Rainbow Jersey off of his shoulders over the last couple of days. He had been managing quite a few second places, considerably better than most who experience the curse of the Rainbow, but he has now one two cobbled Belgium races thus far. This victory is his first in one of the Classics of the sport. I was struck by the way he made sure to show off the jersey that marks him as the World Champion... Just in case anyone was unsure of his talent. In the distance, you can see the next two riders on the road, Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) and Sep Vanmarcke (LottoNL Jumbo) who finished second and third respectfully.
