Bora-Argon ready to work for Sagan


Peter Sagan's decision to join Bora-Argon for the 2017 season will bring a raft of changes within the squad, according to Scott Thwaites.

The world champion agreed a move to Bora - who are currently a pro-continental team - earlier this month once his current deal with Tinkoff expires.

Bora, who will become Bora-Hansgrohe from 2017, hope Sagan's arrival can help in their pursuit of a place as a UCI WorldTour team, but Thwaites knows the Slovak's arrival will bring plenty of other changes.

"We are a pro-continental team at the moment with no massive riders, but good riders like Sam Bennett," Bora rider Thwaites told Cycling Weekly.

"Sagan is just at another level, the current world champion and wins around 20 races a year. Everything changes when he comes to a team, it revolves around him.

"Unless you are a climber then you are pretty much going to be a worker for Sagan.

"If you are sprinter or lead out man, he is always going to be faster than you and you have to fill in the worker role."
