In the cycling world, Peter Sagan is known as the “Tourminator” and also “Peter the Great” for good reason. Born in Slovakia, Peter Sagan’s journey to becoming a professional is an amazing one.
The best story by far is the one where Sagan had borrowed his sister’s bicycle to compete in the Slovak Cup as he did not receive a spare bicycle from his sponsors. Despite that, we went on to win the race. How much cooler can this guy get?
Specializing as a puncheur and a sprinter, Peter Sagan has gone to win many races throughout his professional career including stages and Classification awards in the Tour de France.
His most notable achievements to date are 8 stage wins in the Tour de France, Combativity Award in 2016 and a staggering back to back win from 2012 to 2016 for the Points Classification in the Tour de France.
In this article, we will be looking at Peter Sagan’s chances and betting odds in the coming Tour de France race.
Peter Sagan Predictions For The Tour de France 2018
Now the important stuff. In all honesty, we don’t think Peter Sagan will be winning the General Classification of the Tour de France.
What we do predict him to win is the Points Classification.
After all, he is a sprinting specialist. As mentioned previously, he has won the Points Classification award from 2012 to 2016, five years consecutively.
The best part is that he is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. Currently, he is the second most repeat winner in this category (after Erik Zabel who has won six times).
Besides that, we also predict that peter Sagan will be taking home a few stage wins as well. Stage 13 will be a perfect stage for Sagan to show the world he is still the top sprinter.
