Video: Sagan jokes he's only good enough for second or third place

Another case of close but no cigar for green jersey favourite Peter Sagan – but he keeps on racking up the points.

Peter Sagan said he was pleased that his friend Vincenzo Nibali won Stage 2 in Sheffield, admitting it was a tough day's racing for all, as he took the Green Jersey.

Team profile: Cannondale

Nationality: Italian

Track record: Five stage wins and two green jerseys are the high point for a team who for many years seemed to save their best for other major races, not the Tour. Slovak Peter Sagan has improved their record, however, with two consecutive triumphs in the green jersey points competition.

Peter Sagan has become accustomed to wearing green jerseys.
