Rumors about Peter

Iím hearing rumors that Peter Sagan might be retiring after the Giro next year.

Has anyone heard anything?

When I watched the video from his fan Q&A at his Gran Fondo last month, it didn't sound like he was planning to. Then again he could have changed.

He said he wanted to ride the Giro before retiring.

He didn't say that the Giro would be his last race.

Reporters are f'in morons.

I believe the "feeling" is he may either retire or cut back after a full schedule next year. He said he wanted to do the Giro before retiring, and next year was a good time to do it.

So, read into that whatever you will.

The Amgen Tour of California was perfect for Sagan, in terms of weather, attitude, skillset and California style of reportage. I actually think he is "bummed out" (as they say) that TOC is off the calendar for a year (or perhaps more.)

I have no idea how this affects his outlook towards retirement, but this has got to be an upcoming season he is not as excited about.

If they were having TOC, I'm not sure he would ride the Giro, it is not exactly his cup of tea, more of a "Bike Racer Bucket List" type of thing.

Cali is over rated

Libs out there should just get the taxpayers to sponsor the event and keep it going

ain't that easy. it's the bleeping weather. earthquakes, mudslides and firestorms be damned. one of the main reasons the toc sprang up in the first place.

Keep that kind of opinion over in P&R. It doesn't belong here.

That's the type of reasoning I'd expect to hear from a person from a backwardwanker state! It's like them piss poor redstate welfare hillbillies. Yeah.

place ainít affordable

mass homelessness and trash thatís associated with it

people leaving as quick as they can for lower taxes/cost of living

state that is eroding personal freedoms

economy based on government and not free market

ok

Cali is ripe for picking on (unless you are worth millions and can actually afford to live a good life there).
