Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) continued his impressive autumn campaign and took an important step towards overall victory in the Eneco Tour when he made it two in a row on the fourth stage of the Dutch-Belgian race.

After an infight with Arnaud Demare (FDJ), he came around Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) and held off a fast-finishing André Greipel (Lotto Soudal) to beat the German in a close photo finish. With the win, the world champion moves into the race lead with a 7-second advantage over Rohan Dennis (BMC).

 

With the win, Sagan moved into the overall lead with a 7-second advantage over Rohan Dennis. However, he is likely to lose the position in tomorrow’s crucial team time trial where BMC are the favourites. The riders will tackle 20.9km on a illy course that includes two tough climbs in the Limburg region.
