After a controversial season with team Tinkoff, Peter Sagan is moving onto German team Bora-Hansgrohe in a three-year deal from 2017 alongside Tinkoff teammates Maciej Bodnar, Michael Kolar and Erik Baška, and brother Juraj.

“It is a great honour to welcome one of the most popular cyclist of our time in our team. Our partners Bora and Hansgrohe are also two big German quality brands. This combination convinced Peter that we are the right team for him and his chase for even more successes the next years. I am very happy and sure that this partnership will be a successful one,” team manager Ralph Denk said in a release from the team.

Following the end of Oleg Tinkov’s sponsorship for the Tinkoff team, the world champion Sagan had been rumoured to be moving to the German squad. The 26-year-old was also linked with Astana.

Canadian company Argon 18 is the current bicycle supplier to the team but with the arrival of Sagan, Specialized confirmed it will sponsor the team for the next three seasons.
