Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) was not considered a contender for Milan-San Remo after being in COVID-19 coronavirus quarantine for three weeks in early February but he showed he should never be ruled out with fourth place in the Via Roma sprint. 

Sagan was rarely seen up front and he shared team leadership at Bora-Hansgrohe with Max Schachmann, but when the selection was made over the Poggio, he was close by and then got back on during the descent.
