Peter Sagan is looking to claim his eighth green jersey in the Tour de France but before celebrating in Paris, he has a bigger and much shorter-term goal: taking the first maillot jaune in Nice on Saturday.

The Slovakian has worn the yellow jersey four times in his career - once in 2018 and on three stages in 2016 - but he's never won the opening stage.
