VIDEO: Peter Sagan Wins Epic Stage Three Of TDU

Comments Comments

Three time world champion Peter Sagan has enjoyed his first win of the 2019 Tour Down Under, a brutal Adelaide Hills stage.

Making it two from two, Sagan also won in the finish town of Uraidla in 2018. But this year’s stage was a lot different -  it featured 146km of racing, no neutral zone, more than 3300 vertical metres, and circuits at both the start and finish of the race.

With six circuits of the final 14km hills loop it was a picturesque and hugely popular stage. Thousands of bike-based spectators lined the course and filled Uraidla’s main street for the fast finish.

The final showdown was between Peter Sagan and 2005 race winner Luis Leon Sanchez, the Spanish veteran in superb form after also competing for the Stage 2 finish.

Stage report to come, in the meantime enjoy the video.
