Peter Sagan

World road race champion Peter Sagan has extended his deal with the Bora-Hansgrohe team until the end of the 2021 season.

The 27-year-old Slovakian joined the team two years ago and and will bid for a fourth consecutive title on Sunday.

However, the sprint specialist will be an outsider on the mountainous course in Innsbruck.

As well as being a six-time Tour de France green points jersey winner, Sagan has 11 stage wins in the race.

“It was a straightforward decision, even if I still have one more season to go under my current contract.,” said Sagan.

“I’ve enjoyed two remarkable years with this team and I wouldn’t want to move. I feel confident the coming years will be as fulfilling as the first two,” he said.
