2012 Tour Of California: Peter Sagan Wins Stage 4

Another stage, another win for Peter Sagan at the 2012 Tour of California.

Sagan, who won the first three stages of the race, won again on Wednesday, finishing in first-place in Stage 4. Sagan needed a last-minute burst to claim the victory, but was able to come out on top in yet another stage.

With the win, Sagan earns another 10-second time bonus.

Heinrich Haussler is currently in second place, trailing only Sagan. Sagan is ahead of Haussler by 16 seconds, and is ahead of third-place Jeff Louder by 34 seconds in the general classification.

On Thursday, cyclists will be faced with a grueling time trial in Bakersfield, California. It will be an 18.4 mile individual time trial course that includes over 1,400 feet of climbing -- hardly a walk at the park for any cyclist.
