Peter Sagan will travel to Bilbao next week to start his twelfth and final Tour de France of his career. It will be his final chance to win a stage, his final chance to win the green points jersey or at least wear it for a day, and his final chance to savour the race that changed his life forever.

Sagan plans to retire from WorldTour road racing at the end of 2023 and then end his career where it all began, in mountain biking, with the 2024 Paris Olympics his final event.
