SANTA ROSA, CA - MAY 19: Peter Sagan of Slovakia riding for Cannondale Pro Cycling celebrates his win of Stage 8 of the Tour California in front of Daniel Schorn of Austria riding for Team Netapp-Endura and Tyler Farrar of the United States riding for Garmin-Sharp on May 19, 2013 in Santa Rosa, California.
It wasn't quite what I hoped for today ... But I can't complain too much. Hopefully this is something I can build on for the Tour. I hope I can keep this trend going.
I think everybody in the peloton was really happy to see the water and have the temperature drop a bit ... The first two days were pretty brutal, so everybody had a little sigh of relief today, I think.
It was a huge morale boost ... It's awesome for the team and for him. It's pretty cool that we were able to double up today.More quotes »
