Peter Sagan might have hit out far too early into the headwind in the Tour de France stage 3 bunch sprint in Sisteron on Monday, but the Bora-Hansgrohe rider could console himself by climbing onto the podium to get the green points jersey, awarded to leader of the points classification, for the 126th time in his career – including a record seven trips to the final podium as overall points classification winner in his career.

"It was a pretty messy sprint. In the final three or four kilometres of the stage, we had a terrible headwind and everybody was all over the place – riders were coming to the front then dropping back, it was messy," Sagan said after the stage finish in Sisteron.
