Peter Sagan wins first hilly stage of Tour

QUIMPER, France (AP) — For the second time in this year’s Tour de France, Peter Sagan has beaten Sonny Colbrelli in a sprint finish.

As opposed to the flatter Stage 2, his Stage 5 victory came at the conclusion of the race’s first hilly route Wednesday.

Greg Van Avermaet took advantage of an intermediate bonus sprint to add two seconds to his overall lead, ahead of BMC teammate Tejay van Garderen.

Race favorite Chris Froome crossed safely in the main pack.
