After the second stage of Tirreno-Adriatico, Peter Sagan was finally getting back his form, his strength was returning, but it seems that Sagan will not be continuing his 2022 tour anytime soon as he falls prey to sickness again.
Reportedly, Sagan will not be attending the third stage of Tirreno-Adriatico as he fell ill on Wednesday, thus he will have to cancel all of his professional events indefinitely. This recent sickness adds to his 2022 tenure, his year started with the second affliction of COVID-19, and now this surge in sickness again.

Just last week, Sagan was actually experiencing a sore throat, although he tested negative for COVID-19. It is unclear however if this recent surge in illness is a continuation of what he was experiencing last week or not. It was all going so well during the Tirreno-Adriatico when he was getting well and regaining his strength, he managed to grab the fourth position despite his illness.
He was even going to win the sprint if he had not faded, that is when the eventual winner Tim Merlier crossed him and took the first position. With this illness, it seems that he will also be missing out on Milano-Torino which is slated for March 16, and won’t even be able to practice for La Classicissima.
All of our prayers go to Peter Sagan, although he will be missing out on important events, it is his health that truly matters above anything else. Stay tuned for more updates!
