Re: 83rd Tour de Suisse, June 15th-23rd 2019

in the end [Stage 3] was a nice finish, but not that exciting, and with the predicted winner #bora Peter Sagan - taking a victory in the Tour de Suisse for the 9th year in a row.

Degenkolb was none too happy with Sagan shouldering him off his own lead-out man. You could see Jasper Stuyven look around in somewhat dismay just before Sagan launched, probably wondering what happened to Degenkolb, and just what the heck Sagan was doing in that position.

But the Slovakian looked just so strong in his punch up that final incline that I doubt anyone was going to challenge him, even if had started slightly behind. That being said, I believe it was Hincapie who was recently commenting on Sagan, after it was suggested that he was well-liked both in and outside of the peloton. He made it pretty clear that Sagan, like Lance, was "a killer," and that doesn't always make for great friendships. He goes for what he feels is rightfully his—all is fair in love and war, etc.
