The 28-year-old Frenchman is certainly well known to fans, and he often gets used to shining in escaping the stages of the Tour de France.

Latour noted that Sagan’s arrival had “exceptional added value” for TotalEnergies in this regard as well.

“Obviously they are going to invite us for a race that we have had a hard time getting into. He will come with bikes (he will bring the niche brand to the team, note), (sports) clothing … the team will go one step further. That is another motivation,” says Latour.

He sees a great contribution to Sagan’s post. “It’s so rewarding to be next to such a rider. You always have to learn from an athlete at this level,” said the three-time world champion.

Incidentally, the Slovak rider in his farewell year with Bora had five wins in the Profipeloton, while TotalEnergies had six, but not one in the WorldTour Elite Series.

It will debut for the French team at the Vuelta and San Juan races in Argentina (January 30 – February 6).
