The end of last year meant a change of teams for Slovak cyclist and two-time world champion in road cycling, Peter Sagan. After two years in the now-defunct Russian team Tinkoff, he now officially represents German Bora-Hansgrohe.

“The atmosphere in Bora is very good and I do not even feel like a greenhorn,” Sagan said, as quoted by the Sme daily. “After all – you still need to ride a bike and spin the pedals. This is what the cycling is about.”

Besides the new team, the Slovak cyclist also introduced his new bike on his Facebook account, even showing some tricks. He will ride on Venge ViAS produced by Specialized Bicycles, Sme wrote.
