Peter Sagan's form heading into the Ponferrada World Championship road race on September 28 appears in doubt after he abandoned the Vuelta a España on Saturday. The Slovak star of team Cannondale won the green jersey at the Tour de France for a third time this year, but has been quiet since.

"It's been quiet, but the Vuelta a España should put me in good standing for the Worlds," Sagan said before pulling out of the Vuelta a España. "I'm just as serious as the last years."
