Peter Sagan joins TotalEnergies on a two-year deal

Peter Sagan will join TotalEnergies on a two-year deal next season, the second-tier French team announced on Tuesday.

Sagan has been at Bora-hansgrohe for five campaigns where he also won two of his seven green jerseys for sprinters at the Tour de France.

He will be joined at the French team by two fellow Bora riders in Daniel Oss and Maciej Bodnar.

Sagan, who reportedly earned 5 million euros a year at Bora will work under Frenchman Jean-Rene Bernaudeau at his new outfit.

“This new adventure is very exciting. Jean-Rene is a manager who wants to change things in world cycling,” Sagan said. “I hope to be able to help this team to achieve that and to win many races in these new colours.

“For now, I’ll obviously stay concentrated on the end-of-season goals with my current team and I’ll join my new team with a conquering spirit this winter,” he added.

Sagan’s signature also brings the French team a new bike supplier in Specialized and kit manufacturer in Sportful, as both carry on their partnerships with the former World Champion.

“He is without doubt the world’s most popular rider, he’s an exceptional talent,” Bernaudeau said. “This recruitment is, before anything, a marker for our sporting ambition,” he added.

Sagan is a doubt for the remainder of the current campaign due to a knee injury which forced him to miss the Tokyo Olympics.
