Sagan Gumps the field

Slovakian wins cinematic Stage 3; Tom Danielson crashes but finishes
Peter Sagan had a victory dance prepared for his Stage 3 victory Tuesday in the Tour de France. “It’s a thing I’d discussed with my teammates about what kind of gesture I’d do on the line,” Sagan said. “Everybody said, ‘Do a Forrest Gump’ because when he was told to run, he ran. And when I’m told to win, I win.”
Switzerland’s Fabian Cancellara retained the leader’s yellow jersey for a fourth consecutive day after finishing in the same time as stage winner Peter Sagan.
