I cant believe some of the stick I've read, he is young and smashing his first Tour de France (so far), I think he is genuinely just buzzing off his own success as opposed to acting up and trying to rile other riders and I think its brilliant to watch.

What is the common consensus on here of "The Tourminater"*?

*That could well come back to bite him right on the arse if something causes him to DNF.

Just been reading about him on Wikipedia  39 Winning a championship race on a bike borrowed from his sister  13 Winning a sprint after pulling his foot out of his pedal  13 No handed wheelies  13 .....  39 Bit of a no-brainer for me. Godsend

Sagan, is a talent that's not been seen since the likes of Merckx or the big Mig. His English Language will improve; and he could win the tour? well, one day.

I wouldn't say he's either. He's a young guy making waves and he's clearly enjoying himself... much like another young guy who made waves, enjoyed himself then went and won a world championship.

He's great for the sport and hopefully he'll continue winning although Tourminator might be a push, and he'll definitely never be the Tourmalet-or.

Absolutely fantastic - just what cycling needs! Love his interviews in English too.

The one where he unclipped his foot and still won was amazing - in the Tour de Suisse - went around corner with too much speed in the bunch, so unclipped and put foot down bmx-style, clipped back and sprinted to victory!  13

some people might say this and I couldn't possibly comment but............

considering he's won so many stages this year, do you think he might be using something more powerful than just Weetabix?

He's a character with stacks of talent to back it up with. More of the same please.

Unless he's been at it since he was a kid, then no - he has been winning bike races (of all kinds) with his own particular flair for a number of years. I'd say he's just supremely talented (and I'll be enormously disappointed if that's not it).

Isn't it such a shame that when an exciting new talent comes through, everyone thinks he must be on the juice? That's not a dig at you, londonplayer, just a comment on the sorry state of the sport in past years...

A very talented young athlete. Nothing more, nothing less.

What people choose to make of him / label him as will be another thing entirely.

i still think he should keep a superman cape in his back pocket and as he is about to cross the line put it on and do the usual superman impression

Agree with step-hent. Again not digging at anyone. But what a sad state of affairs that anyone who wins is pretty much certain to get a finger of suspicion pointed at him.

Personally I think Sagan is a breath of fresh air.

I admit that my first thoughts were,"I hope he is not chemically enhanced". I am convinced that cycling has a bad press because it is dealing with the problem. Other sports? Ermmmm?

classic case of a former mountain biker kicking ass again. i like him, and i ride cannondale as well. but i didnt realise he is only 22. so i would say godsend.

and people moaning about his victory celebrations need to calm down!

if i won my first ever tdf stage on the first day i would be doing back flips
