Sagan set for Vuelta after Tour green jersey

Peter Sagan appears set to ride the Vuelta a Espana, despite struggling through the latter stages of the Tour de France after a crash.

The Bora-Hansgrohe rider had already secured a record-equalling sixth green jersey in France when he went off the road in the 17th stage and suffered cuts to his arms and legs.

Sagan appeared to be in real pain as he completed the race, with reports in Spain suggesting his fitness would need to be assessed before the Vuelta later this month.

However, the Slovakian looked to put any fears of lasting damage to bed on Tuesday as he hinted at a return to Spain, where he has enjoyed four stage wins previously.

"Hola Espana," Sagan posted alongside an image on his Instagram page, including a cycling emoji.

Sagan has only once completed La Vuelta - in 2011 - and it is still not certain that he will finish the race this year, with the UCI Road World Championships, where the 28-year-old holds the road race title, coming up in September.


Hola España!
