Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) has been confirmed to race again at the Tour de Pologne in Poland at the end of the month after his disqualification from the Tour de France.
Earlier reports suggesting that Bora-Hansgrohe had confirmed Sagan’s place at the Tour de Pologne have now been confirmed after race organisers released a statement. “The Lang Team is pleased to announce that Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will participate in the Tour de Pologne” they clarified.
“Sagan’s presence will be an important contribution that will add further value to the start list for the 74th Tour de Pologne, which has grown into a high class event full of major stars.” the organisers continued. Having had time to sit out, since his departure from the Tour, Sagan will be eager to continue his form that saw him take a stage victory in his short time at the Grand Boucle.

Sagan is expected to be accompanied by a number of Polish team-mates, possibly including Rafal Majka who crashed out of Tour de France and could be eyeing potential assault on the Vuelta an Espana later this year.
Sagan isn’t the only star that will take to the Polish race with Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) already putting his name down having missed the Tour de France this year in favour of the Giro d’Italia. Other notable names include Caleb Ewan, Rui Costa and Luis Leon Sanchez, who all chose to compete at the Giro instead of the Tour this year.
The Tour de Pologne runs from the July 29 to August 4.
