Un-freaking-believable.

At least we'll get to see him a lot.

Denk's statements were pretty good, after all. He didn't want to disrespect the Giro and felt that it had been disrespected quite an amount with the new calendar.

Thinking about the Giro going on simultaneously with the classics, Sagan can really be expected to go rampant considering the expectedly light field if he doesn't tire from the Tour.
 
Good news for the Giro. Won't make much change for his fans - they follow wherever he's participating. Though it makes a change for the Classics' fans.
For the sponsors, it probably was the sum of days in the open, and for him, there might even be some attachment involved.
Overall, I'd say it's a decision that will maximize broader gains in this skewed season.
 
I really wonder what Sagan climbing will be this year. Skipping the classic races could probably change completely his preparation and priorities. I wish to see the old Peter able to climb with the best as long as possible. I prefer to see him winning one or two hilly stages to see him second - 5th on 15 bunch sprints.
And my wet dream is to see him with the best in WCRR. just a dream.

That is not real. WCRR is between TDF and Giro. He wont participate 100%. Anyway I better understood why he is going to Giro when I saw that commercials.
 
He has not been


If any year is the year to break the streak, it seems like this is the one. He hasn't been on form, and he looks very interested in the Giro.
Why this year? Just because of his form? Because I think the route is probably better than ever for Sagan. The only ones I could potentially steal green on this route, and only under the right cirsumstances, would be Alaphilippe and Van Aert and that's not gonna happen this year.

That’s just in. Even off form he can win green because he doesn’t have to win anything at the Tour. Even off form he will get top 5 in sprints and then top 3 in intermediate sprints and then he will win the sprint points that other sprinters can’t reach.
