After five hours of racing, the Slovak burst clear over the final 50 meters to edge out Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet of Belgium and Australian sprinter Michael Matthews.

“It was my 100th win, that’s a special number. But it’s just cycling, better to live to 100 than have 100 wins,” said the charismatic Sagan, who will target a third straight world championship title in Bergen on September 24.

Van Avermaet can measure up against the 27-year-old Sagan again on Sunday at the Montreal Grand Prix, also a World Tour event.
