Leading Them Up TDU17-9
None other than the two time World Champion, Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), who hit the bottom of the final climb on the front of the peloton. Sagan was either riding for himself or for his teammate sitting in third overall, Jay McCarthy. Trying to hold the wheel of the Slovakian was Nathan Haas (Dimension Data) followed by Richie Porte (BMC). The climb proved too steep for Sagan, but he was the one to open up the attacks on the final summit.
