Peter Sagan will miss the Opening Weekend of races in Belgium at the end of February despite recovering from COVID-19 after ten days of quarantine on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria. 

Sagan’s race programme has still to be confirmed by Bora-Hansgrohe, but he is likely to return to racing at Strade Bianche on Saturday, March 6. He will then ride Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo to try to rapidly find his form before he heads to Belgium for the cobbled Classics.
