Leading Slovakian rider Peter Sagan confirms a strong fight in USA Pro Challenge this year which about to start soon in Colorado from August 19. The world’s No.2 cyclist had an excellent season till date with several strong performances, especially his 2nd Maillot Vert victory at Tour France & presently he is charged up for more winning performances.
The Cannondale rider has already flown to USA much ahead of the Pro Challenge & is gunning up strongly for a remarkable performance at the elite race. “It has always been a huge pleasure for me to compete in US”, stated Sagan reminiscing his previous outstanding wins in the American soil- including the 5 stage victories in Tour of California last year. “I love how people cherish these events, their support & their warmth. It offers me a great boost to explore the best of myself.” The Slovak rider is hopeful that apart from strong performances in the upcoming Colorado race, he has the added boost up that a fantastic ride there can lead him to a remarkable season end.
Sagan went into a short hiatus post Tour de France before getting back for RideLondon Classic. He flew to US on 6th August & since then has been training hard for the prestigious event.
“RideLondon Classic race was the 1st championship post my return & it was natural to experience a tough time”, Sagan admitted his not-up-to the-mark performance at the race. “But I am expecting better condition & good legs in US Pro Challenge. I decided flying to Colorado around a couple of weeks ahead to ensure best of preparations for the event. My first aim is to stay competitive & also to prep up for the last part of this season. I need to get the rightmost form & the desired confidence to make it big”.
