Sagan to race Down Under
Adelaide, Australia — Three-time world road race champion Peter Sagan of Slovakia has confirmed he will compete in the Tour Down Under in January, the opening World Tour event of the season.
Sagan won the world title last month for the third straight year, becoming the first cyclist to do so. He competed in the Tour Down Under for the first time last year, finishing second on three stages behind Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan.
Sagan, who rides for the BORAhansgrohe team, said the six-stage Tour Down Under is “the perfect start to the UCI World Tour season each year ... a challenging and tough course, warm weather and the passionate fans that cheer for us day in day out no matter what.”
