Peter Sagan is finally healthy and able to get back to training, the TotalEnergies team announced on Friday. TotalEnergies did not say if the health problems stemmed from the three-time world champion's second bout of COVID-19. He tested positive before the team's January camp and never made it back to full health.

Sagan raced only 13 days this season, starting Tirreno-Adriatico while still feeling sick and showing some form with a fourth-place finish on stage 2. He pulled out of the race with a fever and stomach problems the next day.
