Sagan wants to win Roubaix and San Remo

Peter Sagan has just arrived in Australia to begin the new season at the Tour Down Under

The World Champion who will once again proudly wear his rainbow jersey after his third consecutive victory at the Tour Down Under, and will experience his first season as a father after the birth of his son last October

Sagan, who rides for the BORA-hansgrohe team, said the six-stage Tour Down Under is "the perfect start to the UCI World Tour season each year … a challenging and tough course, warm weather and the passionate fans that cheer for us day in day out no matter what."

Now that Sagan’s paternity leave is over, he is feeling super exited and ready to give his best and make the 2018 season extra special.

Sagan admitted to feel ‘like any other dad’ out there and claimed that he continues to hunger for success as the new season begins and his 28 birthday arrives. He is now starting his 10th season as a World Tour rider feeling more in shape than ever before.

“It’s a beautiful feeling being a father, it’s difficult to describe, Marlon makes me so happy,” Sagan told the press.

“I’m a normal dad, who gets worried when he cries and I can’t understand what he needs; I also enjoy playing and smiling with him. My life has changed, things are more emotional now but everything else is pretty much the same. The truth is that Kate mostly looks after Marlon but I’m sure that’ll change when he gets older. I’ve lost some sleep but it’s been worth it for sure.”

So far, Sagan has won 101 races..

When asked about his main goals and future plans, Sagan said that he would love to win Paris-Roubaix and Milan San Remo.

“There’s little change to my usual race programme. After racing in Australia I’ll do an altitude camp at Sierra Nevada in Spain. I could then ride the opening races in Belgium at the end of February. For sure I’ll be in Italy for Strade Bianche and Tirreno-Adriatico before Milan-San Remo. My build-up for the Belgian Classics will follow the usual path.”

Peter Sagan exclusive interview for Slovak TV with English sub title.

Talking about last season, Disqualification from Tour de Trance, his personal life and the 2018 season coming.
