Sagan to Start at the 2020 Giro and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it! So, what did you miss?

An exciting Giro awaits us

The GC contenders should properly plan their power output as the last week will feature three stages with over 5,000 m of climbing. The route also consists of three individual time trials, with the last one happening on the final day in Milan. Together with the appearance of Peter Sagan, this should make for a fantastic Grand Tour.

“In the last ten years I have had the opportunity and privilege to compete, many times, in some of the most prestigious races held in Italy, but I always felt that something was missing – the Giro d’Italia,” Sagan announced. “I don’t think there is any rider that doesn’t dream of taking part in the corsa rosa, one of the most beautiful and challenging races in the world.”

With the Giro’s start happening in Budapest, not far from the Slovakian border (or far for Sagan’s fans), the first stage is guaranteed to offer the Slovak champ a hometown atmosphere. Will he win one of the first few stages? We can’t wait to find out.

It’s late in the season, isn’t it

We have to look into this
