Peter Sagan ended the Giro d’Italia with a stage win and overall victory in the points competition, adding the cyclamen-coloured jersey to his collection of seven Tour de France green jerseys, and is now closing in on Sean Kelly’s all-time record of 151 days in a Grand Tour points jersey. 

Sagan will now take a short break before “getting back on it” all over again to prepare for the rapidly approaching Tour de France, all while trying to work out his future beyond 2021, which probably lies away from Bora-Hansgrohe.
