Peter Sagan, the Slovakian Champion finally joins his team TotalEnergies after being slowed down due to the COVID-19 exposure. Sagan resumed his training in the form of a six-hour ride in the training camp in Calpe, Spain. This is the second time he has tested positive for COVID-19 since last year, and this also ruined the team kit unveiling in France that was scheduled for January 10, but unfortunately, Peter Sagan could not make it.

Peter Sagan along with his brother moved from Bora-Hansgrohe to TotalEnergies, the motivation of both the brothers remains sky-high. The rules of quarantine have also changed since Spring 2021, this time he was directed by the French Health Authorities towards isolation at home for five days, he spent his isolation period at his home in Monte Carlo.
