Bora-hansgrohe's Peter Sagan has taken his first stage victory in the 2019 Tour de France. The former World Champion was the strongest in the final sprint in Colmar.

The profile of the day suited strong sprinters like Sagan and the rider didn't disappoint. Bora-hansgrohe was setting the pace in the peloton at various points of the race and the rider could stay with the pack throughout the four categorised climbs of the day to be ready for a final bunch sprint.

"I just have to ride with passion and the victory comes," said the Slovak rider at the end of the stage. "I have to say thanks to all my teammates, who did a very very good job. The Tour de France is very nice for us. We controlled the race the entire day, from the flat parts until the finish.

"I did my best and the victory just came. If I don't win then everybody would ask me why did I miss it. But now you see that nothing is missing. Everyone needs good luck and a good day for winning."
