Peter Sagan is set to leave Bora-Hansgrohe at the end of the 2021 season
It was announced yesterday that the three-time world champion Peter Sagan and fellow sprinter Pascal Ackermann will part ways with the German team due to a restructure which will see several new signings.
In Sagan’s statement he said, “After a long and thorough discussion with my own management and under a mutual agreement with Bora-Hansgrohe, we came to the decision that it would be best if my cycle in the team came to a close and that a new chapter opened in my career.”

“Change is part of life and growth. I’m sure Bora-Hanagrohe will continue to be successful, and I wish them all the best in the coming seasons.”
Since joining the team in 2017, Sagan has won multiple Grand Tour stages, green jerseys in the Tour de France, a world title and Paris-Roubaix. Closer to home, he’s won two stages at the Santos Tour Down Under for Team Bora-Hansgrohe in 2018 and 2019 and won the Classic in 2018.
Although teams and riders cannot confirm which teams they’ll join until the UCI transfer window opens on August 1st, it is rumoured that Sagan will head to Team TotalEnergies.
Bora-Hansgrohe riders Erik Baska, Maciej Bodnar, Daniel Oss, Juraj Sagan, Rudiger Selig, Andreas Schillinger and Michael Schwarzmann are also set to leave the team, with many expected to sign with Sagan’s new team.
