After a disappointing start to his time at new team TotalEnergies, Peter Sagan has headed to a high-altitude training camp in Utah as he seeks to rediscover his top form ahead of July's Tour de France.

So far in 2022, Sagan has raced the spring Classics through Gent-Wevelgem, taking fifth at Milan-San Remo along the way, but hasn't raced since withdrawing from the second stage of the Circuit de la Sarthe in early April.
