Sagan shows up at Tirreno-Adriatico with thumb wrapped

by CyclingTips

After a fall in Strade Bianche last weekend world champion Peter Sagan (BORA-hansgrohe) showed up at the pre-race press conference with his thumb wrapped, though the team said this was only a precaution.

“I feel good again. Saturday I felt a little sick,” said Sagan. “After I was involved in a crash, I gave up. Sunday and Monday I have not touched the bike. But now I feel okay again. I want to make something of this week.”

According to team management there is no injury with his thumb.

“The packed thumb is a precaution, Peter has no injuries,” said Enrico Poitschke. “He did feel a little sick. Perhaps it is a backlash of the three-week high altitude training camp in Sierra Nevada ahead of the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. I expect this week he will have no problem.”

The BORA-hansgrohe team finished 15th in the opening stage team time trial with Sagan finishing with the team.
