Covid disrupts Sagan's plans: renounces two classics

The Slovakian tested positive with his brother almost two weeks ago in Gran Canaria in a concentration. There is still no date for its premiere in 2021.


The Slovak Peter Sagan (Bora Hansgrohe), three times world champion on the road, will miss the opening weekend of classics in Belgium scheduled for February 27 and 28 at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels, after having passed 10 days of quarantine in Gran Canaria due to Covid 19.

Still without confirming his debut for the season, Sagan could return at Strade Bianche on March 6, to then contest the Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo, before facing the classics in April.

Sagan, his brother Juraj and his Bora-Hansgrohe teammate Erik Baska tested positive for COVID-19 ten days ago during a rally in Gran Canaria. The triple world champion already had to postpone his debut of the season after the cancellation of the Vuelta a San Juan, in Argentina. His loss at the Omloop and Kuurne-Brussels will be covered by the German and new signing of the team Nils Politt.
