Slovak cyclist Peter Sagan succeeded beyond his expectations in his first start in the Tour de France as he captured the green jersey in the points classification. He exchanged places with British cyclist Mark Cavendish who won the last stage, the Sme daily reported.
“I am surprised with what I accomplished during my first start,” stated Sagan, as quoted by Sme. “I did not expect so much success.”
Sagan won three individual stages and ended among the three best in another seven stages and became the most successful Slovak participant in the famous French cycling competition.
