Peter Sagan will not compete in Liège after a gray spring

The Slovakian champion has decided to stop after leaving in the Walloon Arrow to focus on the Tour of California. He has only achieved one victory so far in 2019.


Peter Sagan has decided to end his Spring Classic season and has given up competing in the Liege-Bastogne-Liege, the last round of the Ardennes triptych, which takes place this Sunday.

A Sagan has had a very hard time Classic of the Ardennes, since it left in the Amstel Gold Race and in the Walloon Arrow. "I came to the Flecha Valona to work for the team and contribute with my effort to achieve the best possible result, together with the team we decided that the best thing for me is that I rest a few days to prepare myself better for the next races, starting with the Amgen Tour of California on May 12, "said Sagan, wants to shine again in one of his fetish tests in which he has accumulated 1622222 stage wins and in which he went empty for the first time last season.

Sagan hopes that the Amgen Tour of California will mark a turning point in his 2011 season 2019, where to date he has only been able to add one victory: the one achieved in Uraidla in the third stage of the Tour Down Under, where he also managed to top 2 -3 and a Top-10 more. Later the Slovak summed 5 Top-10 in the Tour of San Juan and 2 Top-5 in Tirreno-Adriatico.

Lala attention the results achieved by Sagan in this spring cyclist. The Slovakian is still reluctant to add Milan-San Remo to his record, as this year he was fourth after Alaphilippe, Oliver Naesen and Michal Kwiatkowski. And in the classics of the pavés Sagan has been far from fighting for the title although he was protagonist in the flight in Ghent-Wevelgem, grazed the Top-10 in Flanders (was 11th) and managed to finish fifth in Paris-Roubaix despite not revalidate the title of champion.

Sagan wants to turn the page and fight for more goals this season, such as adding stages in the Tour de France, where he already has 11 stage victories and a total of six green jerseys of the regularity, and the World Cup from Yorkshire, where he chooses to get his fourth rainbow jersey from the world champion.
