World champion Peter Sagan suffered a pedal problem in the final straight but slotted his shoe back into its clip in time and powered to victory in the third stage of the Tour de France Monday.Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) took a second to clip his shoe back in before accelerating to outsprint Australian Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb) and Ireland's Dan Martin (Quick-Step Floors).Australian Richie Porte, one of the top contenders, launched an attack with about 700 meters left in the last ascent – a 1.6-km climb at a gradient of 5.8 percent on the Cote des Religieuses – but it was too soon.Barring the pedal incident, Sagan was in control.
