The organisers of the Volta a Catalunya WorldTour stage race announced on Monday that Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) would make his debut appearance in the Spanish event. The seven-stage race is scheduled for March 22-28, overlapping with the E3 Saxo Bank Classic and Gent-Wevelgem in the final weekend, indicating that Sagan would miss both races, which are usually staples on his calendar.

Sagan has made the Belgian Classics his playground, winning the E3 Prijs in 2014 and twice landing on the podium as runner-up (2013, 2016) and has won Gent-Wevelgem three times (2013, 2016, 2018) in addition to three other podium finishes.
