Bora-Hansgrohe sprinter Peter Sagan shrugged off any sense of disappointment if he fails to win an eighth green points jersey at the Tour de France but warned he would fight for every point available in the intermediate sprints and possible sprint stages, insisting he was “still in the game.”

Sagan has won the green jersey a record seven times. However, he appears far from his best in the 2020 Tour de France sprints and Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-QuickStep) wears the green jersey, leading Sagan by 45 points as the riders enjoyed the second rest day at the foot of the Alps.
