Peter Sagan: It's important to have a spectacle

Peter Sagan got the second position in Milano-Sanremo after the exciting last kilometers. The rider of Bora-hansgrohe was pleased with his and his team's work at the end of the race despite not getting the victory.

"I gave my all today," said the rider. "My team did a great job getting me to the Poggio safely. Luckily we didn't crash – that was really important, as it was very close at the finish line after I finished my sprint."

Sagan attacked from the front group during the ascent of the Poggio and was joined by Julian Alaphilippe and Michal Kwiatkowski, who got the victory in the final sprint.

The Slovak was happy about his moves spicing up the race. "I think it's important for the fans to have a spectacle – everyone's happy.

"It was instinct to attack on the Poggio – I tried and after I attacked I saw I was alone, and then Kwiatkowski and Alaphilippe came with me. We descended to the finale and made it something really special," he added.

The next race for Sagan will be on Friday at the E3 Harelbeke, where he got the victory in 2014 and the second place in last year's edition.
