News: Sagan to ride Tour of Poland

The Tour of Poland is pleased to announce that Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will participate in the Tour de Pologne – UCI World Tour from July 29th to August 4th.

For the two-time World Champion, the Polish stage race will mark a return to competition. Sagan’s presence will be an important contribution that will add further value to the start list for the 74th Tour de Pologne, which has grown into a high class event full of major stars.

Peter Sagan is returning to the roads where he shone in 2011, the year he won the race, clinching the yellow jersey at the end of a fascinating, head-to-head duel with Daniel Martin that lasted all the way to the final stage; Sagan also captured two stage victories and the jersey for the points’ classification. It was an important victory that helped the then twenty-one-year-old Slovak rider to evolve into a major figure in major cycling’s international scene.

“Although six years have passed since my last participation at the Tour de Pologne, I will never forget how I felt in 2011 when I stood on the final podium in Krakow with the yellow jersey. It was my first overall victory in a major stage race and one of my best moments as a young rider. I’m happy to announce that I will be back for the 2017 edition and I look forward to an exciting week of racing in Poland. See you in Krakow in two weeks,” says Peter Sagan.
