Bora-hansgrohe's Peter Sagan is set to start in the upcoming Tour de Pologne, which will take place between July 29th and August 4th.

The rider is coming back to the race for the first time in 2011 when he took the overall victory in a very close fight with Dan Martin. "Although six years have passed since my last participation at the Tour de Pologne, I will never forget how I felt in 2011 when I stood on the final podium in Krakow with the yellow jersey," the rider commented.

"It was my first overall victory in a major stage race and one of my best moments as a young rider. I'm happy to announce that I will be back for the 2017 edition and I look forward to an exciting week of racing in Poland. See you in Krakow in two weeks."

The organisation of the race, which is part of the UCI WorldTour calendar, is very happy with Sagan's return. "I am happy to have Peter Sagan with us once again on the roads of the Tour de Pologne,"said Czeslaw Lang, general director of the race. "It's an honour to have the World Champion jersey here in the pack.

"All the fans still have an indelible memory of Peter's great victory here in Poland in 2011; it was a thrilling edition full of surprises all the way to the final metre, with Marcel Kittel's victories in the sprints and the battle between Peter Sagan and Daniel Martin for the yellow jersey."
