Peter Sagan is set to return to the Classics in 2021, as well as riding both the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France in a packed season that also features the Olympic Games and World Championships as targets. 

Sagan's 2021 schedule will therefore look a lot like his original 2020 campaign, before the coronavirus pandemic threw everything off track. He opted to stick to his promise to ride the Giro, meaning he had to miss the spring Classics that were rescheduled for the autumn.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
