Sagan’s Bora-Hansgrohe team today announced that the star Slovakian rider along with his brother Juraj and teammate Erik Baska tested positive at a training camp in Gran Canaria.
“For a few weeks now, my brother Juraj, our teammate Erik Baška, and I have been training in Gran Canaria,” Sagan said in statement.
“We had a PCR test done in a local laboratory in order to be able to fly back home.
“Unfortunately, the results weren’t what we would have hoped for and all three of us tested positive for Covid-19. We are all feeling well but, obviously, since that day, we have remained in quarantine,” Sagan confirmed.
Sagan faces a big season ahead with reclaiming the Tour de France green jersey and gold at the Tokyo Olympics no doubt high on his list of 2021 goals.
