Might we see this victory celebration at the end of Sunday’s Tour of Flanders?
Last year’s runner up at the Tour of Flanders will be looking to go one better on Sunday when the Slovakian wunderkind lines up for the first of the major cobbled classics. Peter Sagan, recent winner of the E3 Harelbeke semi-classic, enters the famed Belgian battle as one of the favorites to capture what he says is his favorite race of the season. Hear what Sagan thinks he’ll need to do different this time around in this candid pre-season interview.
We expect Sagan to choose his Cannondale Synapse for the rough cobbled roads in Belgian’s windswept Flanders region. But he’ll also have the Cannondale SuperSix Evo at his disposal should he decide to opt for a more traditional road set-up. Here’s an up-close look at that race rig, which is outfitted with Vision wheels, SRAM Red 22, FSA handlebars and stem, a fi’zi:k saddle and Kenda tires.
