In his 30th birthday, Peter Sagan finally wanted to compete in the Giro for the first time in his career, and it was not the coronavirus pandemic that was going to change his mind. Even if the Slovak first wanted to win a green jersey on the Tour de France this year (which he did not succeed), he still wanted to start the Giro two weeks later, and he was rewarded this Tuesday, with a great stage victory! Three times second since the start in Sicily (behind Diego Ulissi then Arnaud Démare), the sprinter from Bora-Hansgrohe took his destiny in hand and won after a well-managed stage.
