“I have always enjoyed racing in Belgium. I have won some very important races here. Will this be my last road race in Belgium? It more than likely is, but never say never in life. I will do some mountain bike races in Belgium next season, but my road career will be over soon,” said Peter Sagan.

The competition brought together heavyweight cyclists such as Jonas Gregaard (Uno-X), Jordi Meeus (Bora-Hansgrohe), Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Deceuninck), Oliver Naesen (AG2R Citroen) and Michael Vanthourenhout (Pauwel Sauzen-Bingoal). The last two competitors won the first starts of the Derny Race Wettern.

Previously, after having participated in the road race at the World Championship and the Bretagne-Classic, the cyclist had reported that next season he would return to his origins, he would return to mountain biking and that he would compete in the next matches with Specialized Factory Racing.

“I think all my fans and people deserved to know now that it would be my last year on the road. They need to know. That’s why the ad in San Juan. But if I do mountain biking next year, I can still come here to race, maybe with the national team or with the TotalEnergies team”, said Peter Sagan when declaring that 2023 would be his last year on the World Tour.

Peter Sagan started his career in mountain biking becoming a junior champion in 2008, and soon after, the cyclist made the change in his career focusing on the road sport. With the transition, the athlete managed to win the Tour de France seven times, as well as 12 stages of the competition. In his background, Tour de Flanders, Paris-Roubaix and UCI Road World Championships also fill his acquired gold medals.
