Colmar (France): Slovak Peter Sagan reserved enough strength in the hills of the Alsace region to win a reduced bunch sprint for his 12th overall Tour de France stage win yesterday.

Sagan's win will be popular with fans as the charismatic former triple world champion, and six-time green sprint jersey winner had been frustrated in two near misses so far.
