Peter Sagan confirmed for Amstel Gold Race

One week after his solo triumph in Paris-Roubaix, world champion Peter Sagan will lead the Bora-Hansgrohe team in the next WorldTour event, the Amstel Gold Race.

Sagan's best finish in the race came in 2012 when he out-paced Oscar Freire for the final podium spot behind winner Enrico Gasparotto and runner-up Jelle Vanendert, but he hasn't started the Dutch event since 2013.

Sagan will be joined by fellow Paris-Roubaix competitor Marcus Burghardt, with Pascal Ackermann, Cesare Benedetti, Patrick Konrad, Jay McCarthy and Gregor Mühlberger.

Ackermann, the runner-up in the Scheldeprijs and Driedaagse De Panne, will be making his debut in the race.

McCarthy is the top climber in the team's ranks, and showed strong form last week with a stage win in the Vuelta al Pais Vasco.
