Peter Sagan will re-jig his early season schedule and return to Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, as he warms up for the spring Classics and attempts to re-find the form that has delivered him many major victories over the years.

The Bora-Hansgrohe rider will open his 2020 account at the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina, instead of at the Tour Down Under as he has for the three previous seasons, before returning to Europe for the Belgian race on February 29th.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
