STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Slovakia's Peter Sagan raced to his second stage victory in the first three legs of the USA Pro Challenge, and Australia's Lachlan Morton retained the overall lead Wednesday.

The 23-year-old Sagan, riding for the Italian-based Cannondale, completed the 106.1-mile stage from Breckenridge to Steamboat Springs in 4 hours, 4 minutes, 18 seconds for his 17th win of the season.

Morton, riding for Garmin-Sharp, finished in the main field in the same time as the winner to retain a 2-second lead over Mathias Frank, the BMC rider from Switzerland. Sagan, a four-time Tour de France stage winner, remained third overall - 11 seconds back.

Slovakia's Luka Mezgec of Argos-Shimano was second in the stage, followed by Canada's Ryan Anderson of Optum-Kelly Benefit.
