Tour de France sprint jersey winner Peter Sagan claimed the third stage of the USA Pro Challenge, edging out runner-up Luka Mezgec by a wheel in a dash to the finish Wednesday.
Cannondale's Sagan, of Slovakia, earned his second stage victory in the 170-kilometer (105-mile) ride from Breckenridge to Steamboat Springs, which was topped off with a bunch sprint.
"I am very happy," said Sagan. "Thank you to my teammates. They did very good work."
Mezgec (Argos-Shimano) was second and Canada's Ryan Anderson placed third.
