Peter Sagan will compete in the last road race of his career, for the second time, on home roads at today’s final stage on the Tour of Slovakia, after making a short return with the Pierre Baguette team in 2024.

The team, who Sagan’s brother Juraj is a DS for, confirmed that the three-time World Champion would be riding his final race on the road on stage 5 after Sagan already announced this was to be his last dance earlier in the week.
