Shaking off an equipment glitch in the furious finishing sprint, Peter Sagan bagged his eighth career Tour de France stage victory on Monday with an impressive display of power and quick-thinking on a short, sharp final uphill dash.Thomas and Froome got through Stage 3 unscathed, the main goal for them and others eyeing overall victory rather than stage wins.Sagan was watching closely behind him and never let Porte get too far ahead.Sagan seemed to be cruising to victory until his right foot slipped out of his pedal in the last few hundred meters.Porte finished the stage in the same group as Froome and Thomas -- two seconds behind Sagan and other riders who went all out for the stage win.For the moment, however, Sagan planned to allow himself a celebratory drink.
