Slovakia’s Peter Sagan timed his sprint perfectly to clinch stage seven of the Tour de France in Albi on Friday.

The Cannondale rider looked in great shape and completed the 205km trek in an impressive time of 4 hours, 54 minutes and 12 seconds to edge out Germany’s John Degenkolb by a bike length.

Sagan, who was quick to praise his team’s hard work following the race, also won the day’s intermediate sprint and now leads the green jersey contest by 94 points from Germany’s Andre Greipel while Mark Cavendish is currently lying in third place, 11 points further back.

Current overall leader Daryl Impey finished safely to retain the yellow jersey, ahead of two potentially crucial days in the Pyrenees.
