Peter Sagan’s (Bora-Hansgrohe) 2020 season has begun to take shape with the three-time world champion confirming that the Spring Classics, Giro d’Italia, and Tour de France will form the basis of his campaign. The 29-year-old was in Milan on Thursday to watch the unveiling of the 2020 Giro d’Italia, before confirming that he would make his debut in the race.

The decision marks a departure from Sagan’s typical programme with May's Tour of California dropped and a possibility of the Tour Down Under also being shelved. Sagan has used the Australian WorldTour race to open each of the last two of his campaigns. 

Sagan’s busy first half of the season also suggests that the Olympic Games road race does not factor highly on his list of targets, with the rider himself confirming on Thursday that the Tokyo course could be too demanding for a rider of his skillset.
