Gaviria Edges Out Sagan to Claim 2nd Stage Win at Tour de France

SARZEAU, France – Colombian sprint specialist Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step) got his front wheel over the finish line just ahead of Peter Sagan on Tuesday to post his second stage win of the 2018 Tour de France.

Gaviria, who won last Saturday’s opening stage, prevailed over Slovakia’s Sagan (Bora Hansgrohe) and German sprinter Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) in a mad dash over the 4-kilometer (2.5-mile) straightaway at the end of the 195km course from La Baule to Sarzeau.

The General Classification remains the same and Belgian cyclist Greg van Avermaet (BMC) will wear the yellow jersey for at least one more day.

Second place belongs to BMC rider Tejay van Garderen of the United States, while Welshman Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) is in third.

The 23-year-old Gaviria, who won four stages at the 2017 Giro d’Italia, has clearly gotten over any nervousness he might have felt about riding the Tour de France for the first time.
