Peter Sagan to start 2017 down under

by CyclingTips

World Champion Peter Sagan’s first race with his new Bora-hansgrohe team will be the Tour Down Under, he announced via Twitter.

This will be his second time racing the Tour Down Under, with the first serving as his professional debut in the 2010 edition. He has since begun his season at the Tour de San Luis in most years, but that race will not return in 2017.

In his Tweet he included a video of him riding in a breakaway with Cadel Evans, Alejandro Valverde, and Luis Leon Sanchez at the 2010 race.

The Tour Down Under runs from 14 – 22 January.
