Peter Sagan has put his trust in the UCI and race organisers for the safe return of racing, suggesting there is no reason to be scared of catching the COVID-19 coronavirus while racing in a peloton as long as riders are tested before events and everyone respects the health and safety protocols.

The UCI is expected to reveal its medical protocol this week, with leading race organisers and teams also looking at measures to protect the riders, the race caravan and the crowds.
