AL BUSTAN, Oman (AP) - Peter Sagan launched a late attack Tuesday to win the second stage of the Tour of Oman and take the overall lead, with Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins finishing in the middle of the pack.

Sagan, a Slovak who rides with Cannondale, completed the 91-mile stage from Fanja to Al Bustan village in the heart of old Muscat in 3 hours, 48 minutes, 36 seconds. He finished 5 seconds ahead of RadioShack rider Tony Gallopin and IAM rival Martin Elmiger.

Sagan leads Gallopin by 9 seconds in the overall classification.

Wiggins, who struggled on the first day after being delayed by a crash, finished 11 seconds behind Tuesday and is 1:42 behind Sagan.
